Makes 3-4 dozen cookis
48 Rolos, unwrapped
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Sugar, for rolling
Preheat oven to 350. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
Cream together shortening and peanut butter with sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into peanut butter mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls (using a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop if possible). Roll in sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a Rolo into the center of each cookie. The cookies will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
