Crisco vegetable shortening has been a classic ingredient in American baking for over 50 years. Shortening is famed for its easy ability to blend with flour in making pie-crusts, how it retains the chewy softness in cookies, which makes it a favourite in many American households. Use in American or Asian recipes where they specify Crisco or shortening, or start with the recipe on the tin for Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake. The shortening can also be used in frying or cooking - Crisco is famed for turning out the best fried chicken.
Crisco shortening contains 50% less saturated fat than butter. To substitute Crisco shortening for butter or margerine: 1 cup of crisco shortening + 2 tablespoons water = 1 cup of butter/margerine.
