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!)

Fluff It Up

Fluff up your frosting. Shortening whips up fluffier than butter-based frosting, and is better at withstanding heat.

Simple Swap

Replacing butter with Crisco® Shortening is easy. One cup of butter is equal to 1 cup of shortening.

Add Your Own Flavor

Because shortening is flavorless, it is great to use in frosting recipes. It lets the flavor shine!
