There are a lot of reasons to love our all-vegetable shortening. Our tops are: It makes your pie crust flaky, your cakes and cookies soft, and your frosting fluffy.
Because shortening is flavorless, it is great to use in frosting recipes. It lets the flavor shine!
Fluff up your frosting. Shortening whips up fluffier than butter-based frosting, and is better at withstanding heat.
To get that flaky, tasty pie crust, be sure to use cold ingredients. Using ice water and cold (even frozen) Crisco® Shortening is important.
