When baking, I use my ice cream scoop to measure shortening or peanut butter. It is the type with a lever you push and it goes around the inside edge of the scoop to empty. It is a lot less messy to do this.
My scoop holds 1/3 cup. I can do a round scoop for 2/3 cup and add another flattened one to make 1 cup. Or divide the full amount in half for a half a cup. I have even used it in a pinch for a liquid measure.
