Ever since the Crisco recipe was changed way back when, I have never been able to get the same flaky texture. This year tried using lard and though the texture was better, the taste is off. Sort of bitter almost. It's so strong that it covers up the taste of the icing inside. I didn't think using lard would make this much of a difference. Does this sound right?
