No Trans Fat Shortening?

I am very devoted to my Crisco- based pie crust recipe, but would really like to find something without trans fats to replace the Crisco. Not butter, as this yeilds different results, but some other type of shortening. I'm not opposed to lard, but many of my friends are vegetarians and I make the pies mostly for them. Also, storing lard in the fridge when I only make pie 1x a month seems a waste of space. I've tried the Earth Balance shortening with not-so-good results. Any ideas?
