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!)

Hands Off

Avoid kneading the dough too much when making your pie crust. Handle the dough just enough to mix it and roll it—not a touch more.

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. 

Golden-Brown Goodness

Want that golden-brown pie crust? Brushing heavy cream on the edges will give it a beautiful golden-brown shine.
