I'm trying to make peanut butter cookies and I don't know what shortening is. do you think I could substitue oil or Crisco for it?  the only thing is I'm supposed to use a cup shortening and I don't think 1 cup of oil would be too good. any ideas? thanks!

Have you got margarine? You can substitute 1 Cup margarine for 1 Cup shortening (sometimes called by its brand name Crisco). it won't be a perfect match but it will be MUCH better than oil for cookies.

So, how did they turn out?

It just dawned on me that I should have specified STICK margarine instead of tub margarine...tub margarine is useless for baking.

Crisco is shortening but if I don't have shortening I will use margerine but reduce the amount of salt in the recipe Smiley

I actually found a non-hydrogenated shortening at a health food store I go to. It's great because it's an all-vegtable somehwhat-go-for-you shortening. Works great as well!
