Happy New Year!

Christmas Cookies
Originally uploaded by iwork4toby
Peanut Blossom Recipe ~

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream shortening and peanut butter. Add remaining ingredients. Shape into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in 375 degree oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place milk chocolate kiss or star on top of each cookie, pressing down so the cookie cracks around the edge. Return to oven for 2 minutes or until chocolate just begins to melt.

Substitutions ~

I substituted butter for shortening; Skippy 25 percent reduced fat creamy peanut butter for peanut butter; Splenda for sugar; Egg Beaters for eggs; and Skim Milk for milk.

Thanks, family, for your kind comments! : )
