Is Crisco High-Ratio Shortening?
Actually no. You should be able to purchase high ratio shortening at your local baking supply store.
What is the purpose of the Dream Whip? Can it be left out?
Can regular shortening be substituted for the the high-ratio? If not how should this be adjusted. I am unable to locate high-ratio shortening in my area.
Crisco is not high ratio. Crisco has taken out their Trans fats which has tended to screw up some recipes. I like High Ration (Like Sweetex or CK makes some) its better in hot weather and it leaves no greasy after taste like regular shortenings
You can leave out the Dream whip, but i think thats what makes Indydebi's original recipe so good
Willowscry: I'm sure you could sub it out, I'm assuming for the same amount of Crisco....ever since I started making Indydebi's recipe I switched to the High ratio and never looked back. ;-)
Hello...where do I find Indydebis BC recipe? Thanx
Was hopeful for this recipe because it uses a high ratio shortening that would give the consistency I need. Consistency is great, perfect for piping. But, there is something about the taste I do not like. I believe it is the addition of the dream whip. It makes the recipe overly sweet and takes away from the peanut butter flavor. With the amount of sugar in this recipe there should not be much of a need, IMO, of any more sweetening! Next time I will try it without and if I feel like it needs more flavor then I will add in the dream whip, using less on the third try.
What if you were to use some meringue powder instead of dream whip. Dream whip have meringue powder in it and it would be less sweet
I'm thinking the merengue powder would be better....
Anyone think cream of tartar would be a good sub for the Dream Whip?
I will be trying this today, without the DW and will post on how it comes out. Thanks for sharing.
Deam Whip probably adds stability more than flavour... consistency might vary with type of peanut butter? Some seem more runny than others. And I would think natural peanut butter without the iciing sugar and saturated fat to keep the oil from separating would have diff. texture. Has anyone tried it?
