Peanut Blossom Cookies

Not that we need more recipes like this, but I had some chocolate kisses left over from Easter that I wanted to use up. I made my mother's recipe for Peanut Blossom Cookies. Thought you might enjoy it.

Peanut Blossom Cookies

* 1/2 c margarine
* 1/2 c peanut butter

Gradually add
* 1/2 c sugar
* 1/2 c brown sugar

Beat into mixture
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp vanilla

* 1 3/4 c sifted flour
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp salt (opt)

Gradually blend into dry ingredients thoroughly. Shape into round balls and roll in granulated sugar.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees; remove from oven. Place a chocolate kiss in the center until cookie cracks. Bake for 2 minutes longer.

Let cool slightly and move to cookie rack.

Yield about 2 dozen.
