Late Sunday afternoon as my Mother's Day was coming to a close, I thought what better way to say thank you to the family for a FANTASTIC day than making my homemade Kissy cookies.  The kids (and dad) love them and they really are easy to make. 

Give them a try and your family will think you are SUPERMOM.  Enjoy!!!   

Irresistible Peanut Butter Kissy Cookies
Recipe from

¾ cup Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
½ cup Crisco Shortening
1 ¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1 ¾ cup flour
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
Bag of Hersheys Kisses

Heat oven to 375°.  Combine peanut butter, Crisco, light brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl.  Beat at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended.  Add egg.  Beat just until blended.  Combine flour, salt and baking soda.  Add to creamed mixture at low speed.  Mix just until blended.  Roll into a teaspoon-sized ball, coat in sugar and drop 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.  Bake 7-8 minutes or until starting to brown.  Immediately put kiss on top.  Makes about 3 dozen.
Kate’s Comments:  Jif Creamy Peanut Butter works the best (I’ve tried them all).   Don’t flatten like regular peanut butter cookies.  Keep them in ball shape.  Serve with big glass of milk.

Love these cookies! After putting the kisses on the cookies, I put them back into the oven for about 30 sec - 1 minute. It softens the kisses but not melts them. Then the kisses stay soft!
