Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies {Egg-free}

I have been making these cookies for years.  I originally posted them in January of 2012 as a variation with my Peanut Butter Cookies (EF, DF) recipe.  I decided to move them to a post of their own since most chocolate kisses contain dairy and the peanut butter cookie alone does not.  

My family loves these.  It is also a great recipe to make for non-allergy friends.  They certainly won't miss the egg in this one!  Enjoy!!

Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

¼ c vegetable shortening
1 c creamy peanut butter
1/3 c granulated sugar
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla
¼ c milk 
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 c flour
2-4 T additional milk 
3-4 T additional sugar
1 bag of chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 375°.  In a large bowl, beat shortening, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add milk, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat well.  Gradually add flour, beating until mixed in.  Add additional milk one tablespoon at a time until dough starts to form.  Shape into 1 inch balls.  Roll in additional granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  As you remove from the oven, gently press one unwrapped chocolate kiss into the middle of cookie.  Cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing.
Makes about 2-3 dozen cookies.
