I have a question about the recipe "Scallion Pancakes" from mrslarkin. can i use butter instead of the lard/shortening?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
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...
