Has anyone made these with butter or coconut oil instead of shortening?

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

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!
