UPDATE: August 2010--I bought this in May at $21.60 for four, and thereafter it was almost TRIPLE the price--What's THAT all about!!! Outrageous! With this product it is clear you have to keep tabs on changing prices. I was at a health food store a few days ago and found this for sale at under $8 each, better price than buying this from Amazon right now!
There are quite some recipes out there that are calling for vegetable shortening.
By now I avoided cookies & co that have vegetable shortening in their recipes because the most common products always contain hydrogenated vegetable oil. And we know it's not the best fat we should consume.
I got lucky and found this product by Spectrum.
The consistency is smooth and fluffy.
It's very good for baking - I got great results!
Good alternative to other shortenings.
Update: November 6, 2012
I have since found a more reasonable vender for this product at Amazon. I just ordered 3- 24oz. containers from Vitacost for $27.10 including shipping. That comes to $9.03 per container a much better price indeed.
Highly recommend it!

This shortening makes the best cookies! It's also great for making tortilla chips. Good healthy substitute for old fashioned shortening.Published on October 9, 2013 by MT G'ma
This product costs a little more,but it is worth it. There is no saturated fats in this product. I use this in place of Crisco when making pie crusts.Published on August 9, 2013 by Amazon Customer
This shortening tastes great and has worked just as well as Crisco in all my baked goods. (I'm a very picky and exact baker, so that's high praise!) I highly recommend it. Read morePublished on July 9, 2013 by Jessica Crum
For pie dough, this can't be beat. Your finished product will be flaky and have a nice flavor, unlike shortening which leaves a blah taste.Published on January 17, 2013 by Keith B. Steenbergen
