When a recipe calls for shortening, you can often substitute equal amounts of butter or margarine for shortening, Applesauce can also replace up to 3/4 of the shortening in many recipes.

 

Always measure shortening the thrift friendly way, in water.  If you use a measuring cup, you will waste too much of it.
