  1. Hello there.just wondering what is vegetable shortening.also how much is a stick of it equivalent to one tbsp. Thank you

    1. Hi Zahida!
      A stick of butter 8 tablespoons. This recipe makes a decent amount of servings so it requires a bit of butter. You can adjust the number of servings it makes by changing the number on the page :)! Vegetable shortening is a fat that is solid at room temperature. We use Crisco! Hope this helps. Please let me know if you like the recipe or have any suggestions after trying it!
