- 3/4 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- Additional sugar
- 30 miniature milk chocolate kisses
- 60 miniature M&M baking bits
In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla; mix well.
Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well (dough will be crumbly).
Set aside about 1/2 cup of dough for ears. Shape remaining dough into 1 inch balls; roll in additional sugar. Place 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Roll reserved dough into 1/2 inch balls; roll in sugar. Place two smaller balls about 1 inch apart touching each flattened ball (do not flatten smaller balls).
Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven; immediately press one kiss and two baking bits into each cookie for nose and eyes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
