Is there a substitute for Crisco vegetable shortening?

I've got a huge box of Hungry Jack Original Pancake & Waffle Mix. I don't like cooking pancakes, my Girlfriend makes them better, but she refuses to cook since I've been doing it for so many years now.

So, I'm browsing recipes on their website to make something else.. something for dinner using the mix.

Not too many recipes on there that interest me, but I thought I'd do something with this:

Asian Steamed Pork Buns:

I'm going to stuff something else inside. I don't have any Crisco though.

Also, does anyone else have any good uses for Hungryjack?
