✅Shortening is a solid vegetable fat that is typically made by hydrogenating, or solidifying vegetable oils. Trans-free shortenings are now available.
✅Shortening is used in baking to help make products crumbly, flaky and tender. It is 100 percent fat as opposed to butter and lard, which are about 80 percent fat, so shortening results in especially tender cakes, cookies and pie crusts.
✅Shortening achieves these attributes by cutting through or “shortening” the dough, which helps it to bake into separate pastry layers.
✅But shortening does not have the flavor of butter. For this reason, shortening is sometimes butter flavored.
✅Any fat that is a solid at room temperature and used to make crumbly pastry and other food products.
