I have a question about the recipe "Shirley Corriher's Touch-of-Grace Biscuits" from Genius Recipes. Has anyone made these with butter or coconut oil instead of shortening?

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.
