I would say butter is probably not an ideal sub. Coconut oil may be a better like-for-like match, but of course it will impart a slightly different flavor.

Butter will give an entirely different flavor, not the intended flavor. Stick with Crisco.

mrslarkin answered on the recipe page that she thinks it would work.

I would definitely defer to her, thanks! Will check and see how it worked, very curious now...
