You could probably substitute a solid white shortening such as Crisco for lard, although I would be concerned about unhealthy aspects of partially hydrogenated oil.
Unfortunately, Crisco is a terrible lard substitute. It doesn't taste as good; it doesn't perform as well in pastry-making; and it turns out to be less healthy than lard because of its trans fat content. (Crisco did introduce trans-fat-free shortening in 2004.)
Margarine, Crisco, lard, or solidified olive oil butter.
Unsalted butter works great! Let it soften first. Also, lard if animal fat doesn't bother you.
Yes, Crisco can be used as lard
You should be able to use lard instead of vegetable based greases. Many people only make their pie crusts with lard.
1lb crisco equals 1 lb lard
No. Lard is rendered animal fat (the animal fat is cooked down, then cooled and solidified into lard), while Crisco is a vegetable shortening.
The brand doesn't matter but it has to be lard or shortening....
Yes, solid Crisco can be used. Not Crisco oil.
