    • Hi, Sarah. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe. There’s more to come. Shortening goes under the name brand of Crisco if you’ve ever seen that on the shelf. It is a vegetable oil that is congealed to the consistency of a stiff margarine. It’s meant to be a healthier alternative to lard in baking. You can also dip a paper towel into shortening and use it to grease your pans when baking a cake. It helps to let the cake slip out of the pan easier and without ripping to bits after it has cooled. I found a link for Crisco at Tesco, so here you go-co: 😉 http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=273814103

    • Thanks, Sue. I think next week, I’m doing a dessert. Let me know if you have a favorite you’d like to see.
