There are a lot of reasons to love Crisco all-vegetable shortening – at Latorta we use it in frostings, baking, frying and sugarcraft.
- Crisco is a great alternative to butter in Buttercream recipes – it keeps the buttercream white, provides a fluffy texture and is more stable in humid and hot weather. Another bonus is that has 50% less saturated fat than butter.
- Provides moisture and non-stick qualities when used in sugarcraft projects such as moulds, gumpaste extruders, fondant rolling mats and more. It is perfect for adding to your gumpaste and pastillage recipes.
- Keeps your cakes and cookies soft, and your frosting fluffy.
- It is a favourite in pie crusts giving your pastry beautiful flaky results.
- Great for frying and baking as well – a popular ingredient in Southern Fried Chicken.
Suits a range of dietary requirements including vegan, gluten free, dairy free, Kosher and nut free.
