    Shortening

    When Cooks.com recipe calls for shortening, does it mean like "Crisco"?

    Yes. If you want more flavor you can substitute butter, though. Sometimes I do. If the flavor is very delicate, go ahead and use the shortening. It won't compete with delicate flavors.

    I agree with Brigid. At least, that is what i use all the time.

    Shortening is a trans fat so go easy on your intake. I'd use butter all natural ingredient or half and half.
