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!)

Roll It Right

Roll the dough from the center out, lifting the pin after each roll. This helps keep your touch tender, and gives it a nice, round shape. 

Pack It In

For best results, pack Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening into your measuring cup, level with a spatula, and remove with a rubber scraper.

Go Halfsies

If you love the benefits of shortening, but want the flavor of butter, use half butter and half shortening in your baking recipes!
