Peanut Butter Blossoms

I got this recipe from my neighbor, Christina Howden. I'm not usually a fan of peanut butter cookies, but these were great. They were so soft!
Also, watch the baking times. I am cooking at a high altitude (5095 feet), so it takes my cookies longer than it would at a lower elevation.
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Extra sugar
Hershey's kisses
Preheat oven to 375.
Measure out and whisk the dry ingredients and set aside.
Cream the shortening, sugars, and peanut butter. Then add the eggs, milk, and vanilla.
Finally add in dry ingredients.
Form into round balls and roll in white sugar.
Put on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 8 min.
Push a Hershey's kiss deep into the center and bake for another 2-5 minutes.
