Peanut Butter Pinwheel Cookies

1 cup Shortening
1 cup Peanut butter
1 cup Brown sugar
2 large Eggs
2 1/2 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Salt
12 oz. Semisweet chocolate chips

Cream together shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar and eggs. Sift in flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Divide mixture into halves and roll each half out between layers of wax paper or plastic wrap. Melt chocolate chips over hot water. Spread half of chocolate over each half of the cookie mixture and roll up like a jelly roll. Wrap up in the plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice roll into 1/4 inch slices and place on ungreased baking sheets at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until slightly golden browned on bottoms and edges.
