I'm not a big fan of Crisco as it tends to leave a film in my mouth so my BC recipe is typically 1/2 Crisco and 1/2 unsalted butter. But I've been reading tonight about Sugarshack's BC recipe and I'm interested in trying it.
My concern is the fat content. They have similar total fat content levels but the Hi-Ration is just so much higher in trans-fats. I know that neither are healthy options but I worry about the trans fats in Hi-Ratio. Unless there's a HUGE improvement to taste I'm not sure I"m willing to make the jump and change my recipes.
Is it worth the switch? I'm really struggling with this one tonight.
You can purchase a transfat free hi-ratio shortening: SweetexZ.
