What is shortening?

In Pandan, we are only selling vegetable shortening which supplied by Lam Soon Edible Oils and the most importantly it is halal. Shortening is a cooking fat and of course we choose to sell product that is produced from vegetable oils
Shortening is used as an ingredient in many baked goods to "shorten" the amount of flour required, which makes breads, pastries and other baked goods tender. When used in making cookies, if shortening is used instead of butter, the cookie will have a fluffier texture. Using butter increases the amount of water, since most shortening does not contain water, resulting in a thinner dough and thus a thinner cookie. Therefore, a common procedure is to use half butter and half shortening to provide both texture and taste to the cookie.  When storing, shortening can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for approximately 12 months.
