No scale, how many cups in 3 lbs. of shortening?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want so badly to try Sharon's famous BC. I have searched this site but have yet to find the answer (don't know if I'm not searching right or what). I was hoping one of you wonderful, helpful people that have tried Sharon's recipe can tell me what the conversion is. I will be using Crisco, since I can't afford to buy high-ratio just for family cakes, so will it take the same amount? Thanks so much! icon_biggrin.gif

As I remember each cup of shortening weights 7 oz. HTH

Thank you! icon_biggrin.gif I have had the hardest time bringing this thread up again, when I would click a thread it wouldn't open no matter how many times I tried icon_confused.gif . Sorry I didn't say thank you sooner.

I spent a lot of time figuring the quanties of ingredients to price. There is 7 cups of shortening in a 3lb can of crisco.
