Caramel Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies

I have seen this cookies made a million times, but never came across a recipe. I was reading a magazine and saw a giant ad with the cookie and this recipe! I had heard about Pumpkin Spice Kisses, and thought they would be great in these rather than plain kisses. I had no luck findind them, but I did find caramel kisses, and they are delicious! These cookies are so cute, easy and a real crowd pleaser!

Caramel Kiss Peanut Butter Blossoms

1 bag Caramel Kisses
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Holy smokes you were a baking girl before the oven craziness (sorry about that - good luck with a new oven on Monday)! Everything looks great!
