You could substitute any solid fat for the shortening -- in fact, when I read through the comment threads on the post and recipe to check if others had, I saw that I'd made them with bacon fat (which I'd forgotten!) with good results!

Yes. They taste great with butter, but coconut oil tends to hijack the flavor profile.

Thank you both so much!
