Valentine...Valentine...Valentine's

Peanut Butter Blossoms
(Valentine's Day Style)

* Heart shaped Chocolates (we used dove milk chocolates and reese's peanut butter hearts ; I also noticed hersey has a chocolate heart out this Valentines)
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 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
* granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl. Add 1/3 cup granulated and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into mixture.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate heart into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. ( put them in the freezer because the chocolate hearts continue to melt)

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

{and when valentine's day is long over you can go back to using Hershey's kisses!}
