National Peanut Butter Day and Recipe

peanutbutterkiss-flippedMarch is full of holidays, and the popular ones include St. Patrick’s Day, the Ides of March, and so on. Well, I found a delicious one. March 1st is a sticky day.

National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day salutes America’s favorite sandwich spread. What kid didn’t grow up loving a PB&J sandwich?

Me.

Personally, I always ate my peanut butter sandwiches NAKED.

On this sticky holiday, I will share with you a simple, yummy recipe.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Ingredients-

1-8 oz. bag of @Kiss chocolate candies, unwrapped

1/2 cup shortening ( I use Crisco)

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

2 Tablespoons milk

1 teaspoons vanilla

1  1/2 cups all-purpose floursmolder_lg

1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions: Preheat oven to 375* F. Beat shortening and peanut butter in a large (mixer) bowl until well blended. Add sugars and beat until light & fluffy. Add egg, milk, vanilla and beat well. In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on un-greased cookie sheet (I place on parchment paper for easy removal.) Bake 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss candy into the center of each cookie. Remove from pan and cool completely. Makes about thirty-six cookies.

Enjoy with a big glass of milk and a book…
