It's a powdered whipped topping. You add milk and whip it for a few minutes to make whipped cream to put on top of pies, cakes, jello's, etc.

When used in icing, you just throw it in in the powdered form.

Crisco Sticks: You guys should do a cost comparison on those sticks! THey might be easier, but you're paying out the wha-zoo for the convenience! If you're doing any kind of volume at all, it's way worth your while to measure it. My cost analysis was something like $0.53/cup for sticks .... $0.08/cup for crisco bought at sam's.



Paint me lazy but I built a charge of $1.75 per stick into my cost sheet for the premeasured sticks. I like things qick and easy. Measuring Crisco out into cups is a huge pain in my rear.

You guys are right - .5 Saturated Fat per serving, not trans fat. Oh well. It works like a charm anyways icon_smile.gif.

...regarding the Crisco ...I put my mixing bowl right on the scale and add the Crisco into there and measure by weight. No mess, no fuss!

No kidding! That's genius!!! I thought I was doing good by using the Pampered Chef cup that you fill up and push the shortening back out. Measuring by weight would be SO much easier!

Well aren't you the rocket scientist! icon_lol.gif

I have no scale.. you see in this here house we are in the stone ages still. No KA (I know... baaaad baaaad thing) and no scale.

I think I'll get a scale first, that I can buy and sneak in the house. LOL

I used to be a PC consultant, so I've been using the Measure All Cup for my Crisco for years icon_biggrin.gif. I'm totally going with the weight from now on though.

Living in the UK for a few years now I'm totally converted to measuring by weight. A good scale is a must...I really like the Salter digital scales.

FYI, one cup of shortening is 7 oz. I've also been measuring it by weight for more than a year. Those pre-measured sticks are more expensive than butter.

If this is the case . . . does this apply to cream cheese icings as well?? . . . inquiring minds . . . detective.gif

Hi there Ladies icon_smile.gif

I was wondering if you can use No Fat Half & Half in this recipe, or does it need to be whole milk?

Thanks

I've used whole milk, 2% milk, 1% milk and skim milk. It all turns out the same for me.
