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!)

Stay Fresh

For long-lasting freshness, store Crisco® oil or shortening in a cool, dry place away from strong odors, direct sunlight, and sources of heat.

Weigh It Down

Ceramic pie weights work best when weighing down a pie crust. No ceramic? No problem! Dried beans work great, too.

Golden-Brown Goodness

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