  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Chill for 15 minutes.
  2. Using a cookie press fitted with bar disk, form dough into long strips on ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into 2-in. pieces(there is no need to separate the pieces). Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes. (Watch carefully-cookies brown quickly.)
  3. For topping, melt chocolate with shortening; stir until blended. Place in a heavy plastic bag; cut a small hole in the corner. Pipe a strip of chocolate down center of each cookie and sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Yield: 16 dozen.

"Not sure if I messed this up but the dough was not right for a cookie press-tried chilling at different times-cookies a mess. Ended up pulling out my cookie scoop and making them that way-the cookie was delicious and resulting texture great. But, if I'm going to make a regular peanut butter cookie, I'll use my usual recipe"

"Do you have to buy a cookie press or is there another way these will still turn out nice?
