Candy Corn Kiss Cookies

When I found these cute little Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses, I knew I just had to make cookies and use them. So I altered the recipe on the back of the package and they turned out yummy and cute!

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 T milk
1 t vanilla
1 1/3 cup quick cooking oats, divided
1 cup all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat peanut butter and shortening with mixer until well blended. Add sugar and brown sugar; beat till fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together 1/2 cup oats, flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in remaining oats; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove wrappers from candies while cookies are baking. Place one kiss in the center of each cookie and press down. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
