Crisco Vegetable Shortening - 1lb / 453g


Crisco is often difficult to source from our importers.  When out of stock please refer to SOLITE - which is a direct, Australian-made substitute.

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.
