1/3 c brown sugar
1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and unwrap the kisses. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 c sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in extra sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool.
