Peanut Blossoms  (from Nana's kitchen)

1 3/4-cup flour 1/2-cup sugar
1/2-cup brown sugar 1-teaspoon baking soda
1/2-teaspoon salt 1/2-cup butter
1/2-cup peanut butter 2-Tablespoons milk
1-teaspoon vanilla 1 egg
some extra white sugar in a bowl
48 hershey's chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.  In a large bowl combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, butter, peanut butter, milk, vanilla, and egg.  Beat at lowest speed until stiff dough forms.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in white sugar.  Place balls 2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets (I always use parchment paper).  

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.  Immediately top each cookie with 1 candy kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around the edges.  Remove from cookie sheets.
