Best type of shortening for pastry?

achilles007 | Jan 9, 2012 06:11 PM

Hi.

Looking to make biscuits this week, and the recipe had called for butter and shortening.

Was wondering what type of shortening to buy would be best?
I've never done anything like this before (home-scratch-made pastry). In fact, I will be the first in the household to ever do this.

Would preferably like to start with something cheaper that I can get access to pretty quickly.

Thanks, all.
