..... and is why shortcrust pastry is called such (or is it called shortening after shortcrust pastry?).
I don't know, but shortcrust might be a British term. Pie crust in the US generally refers to sweet pies and contains lard or a substitute.

Make what you will out of it, but I have seen huge tubs of Crisco in a sex shop in the Niederdorf, Zuerich.



Don't ask me what I was doing there. I was just accompanying some out of town people around.

Okay then! Another problem solved!
