Peanut Butter Blossoms

Beat together 1/2 C. Butter(or shortening) and 3/4 C. creamy peanut butter. I tend to use closer to 1 C. peanut butter.

add 1/3 c. sugar and 1/3 c. packed brown sugar. mix well add 1 egg, 2 Tbsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla.
Then add 1 1/2 C. flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt

mix until dough looks like so... Roll dough into 1" balls and roll into a bowl of sugar. Bake on baking sheets at 375 for 8-10 min. 

As soon as you pull them out put a kiss in the center and take off baking sheet and cool on rack.

Dont they look devine?!
