Butter Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there! I'm trying to make some cookies, from a recipe I recently read. My question is about butter. On the recipe, there are two kinds of butter ingredients:
1- Butter softened. This one I know. ( At room temperature)

2- Butter Shortening. What is shortening?

Thank you for replying.

Here, the most popular brand of shortening is Crisco. It's hydrogenated vegetable oil.

Crisco also has a "Butter Shortening" Product, it's right next to the regular shortening containers at the grocery store with primarily yellow packaging.

You can check out the Crisco Web Site for more information.

Can I substitute shortening, whit vegetable grease? Or is it the same?

Without the recipe, it would be too difficult to make suggestions. There are obviously issues in cooking and flavor involved...
