Cooking Note:
Crisco Quick Bread Mix is a combination of 10 cups all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 cups solid vegetable shortening. The dry ingredients are mixed together and the the shortening is cut in with a pastry cutter until it's like coarse wet sand. This mixture can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 5 weeks.

The submitter of this recipe sure seems to like Crisco a lot. Maybe they should marry it.

Like it or not, shortening does make waffles with very crisp exteriors. I'd don't like to use it either. But you can't argue with results.

I agree with "Barham" - you don't need Crisco or any shortening to make a good waffle. Replace the same amount with butter. Works the same and tastes better.

Use the recipe called 'Best Waffles Ever' from this website... it doesn't have shortening, it's just as fast and it's very delicious. It's at the top of the best recipes on the waffles main page.

Crisco is a town in Texas I believe. Corpus Crisco, TX.
