I love these cookies! And I usually bake a ton of them during the holiday season. One thing that I do, do differently is I take the cookies out of the over after about 5 minutes then I press the hershey kisses in the center of each cookie and then place them back in the over for the remaining 4 to 5 minutes. I think it taste so much better that way!

1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
