Peanut Blossom Cookies With Dove Chocolates

Everyone has this recipe.  It's as old as the hills.  But I recently discovered how much better these cookies are if you use Dove Milk Chocolate instead of a Hershey's kiss (Sorry Hershey's)   I made these heart shaped ones in February, and square ones are perfect for anytime.

  They might not be as pretty as a kiss, so you'll have to decide if you want prettier cookies or better tasting cookies. I know which I'm choosing!

Dove Peanut Blossom Cookies 
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda

Cream the butters with the sugars.  Add the milk, eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.  Turn off the mixer and add the dry ingredients.  Turn on the mixer and mix well until all is well combined into a soft dough.   Roll the dough into balls.  Roll the balls in white sugar and put on a greased or silicone sheeted cookie pan.  Bake 7 minutes at 375.  Take out the pan and put a dove chocolate on each one and slightly press down.  Put the sheet back in the oven and bake another 1-2 minutes until the chocolate is glistening.  Don't overbake!  Cool on rack.    *I like to freeze the sugared dough balls in quart-sized ziplock bags to be baked when I want.
