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.
After opening a container of Crisco® oil or shortening, write the date on the package so you know when you first broke the seal.
Replacing butter with Crisco® Shortening is easy. One cup of butter is equal to 1 cup of shortening plus two tablespoons of water.
If you love the benefits of shortening, but want the flavor of butter, use half butter and half shortening in your baking recipes!
