Here’s a traditional recipe my children asked for every year, Peanut Blossoms. They’re known by other names, but they’re basically the peanut butter cookie with the chocolate kiss on top. What is the best way to eat these? I always eat the cookie around the chocolate and eat the chocolate last.

|1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place a chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Press down until cookie starts to crack. Bake 2 to 3 more minutes.
