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.
To get that flaky, tasty pie crust, be sure to use cold ingredients. Using ice water and cold (even frozen) Crisco® Shortening is important.
Using Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening in your cookies helps prevent them from spreading too much while baking—making them nice and fluffy.
If you love the benefits of shortening, but want the flavor of butter, use half butter and half shortening in your baking recipes!
