3 Ways Shortening Will Rock Your Baking World

You know Grandma used it to fry her famous chicken, but did you know that our classic all-vegetable shortening is a savvy baker’s best friend? (And it’s vegetarian to boot!)

Delicate Dough

Pie doughs are sensitive. Try not to pull or tug the dough when fitting it in the pan—it can cause it to shrink when baking.

Glaze to Amaze

For an impressive, shiny finish, brush the top of a double-crust pie with a beaten egg or egg white mixed with a little water.  

You're Golden

Did you know cookies continue to cook once they're out of the oven? Remove them from the baking sheet when their edges are golden brown to prevent over-baking.
