Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so I'd go with butter. You could probably use vegetable shortening, but it wouldn't taste as good as butter. Just do a 1:1 trade for this application.

I second the butter. Coconut oil is often used as a butter replacement by people who can't do dairy.

Butter, although i substitute ghee (clarified butter) in lieu of any vegetable shortening. works beautifully & has a lovely nutty aroma.
