• Shortening can almost always be substituted with butter. But it will change the flavor. Most of the pie crust recipes I find use butter now instead of shortening. This is an old, passed down recipe from her mom that was from a time most people used shortening. If you don’t want the trans fats, I know Crisco started making their shortening without trans fats. Or at least not enough to put on the nutritional label….
