Has anybody ever used butter flavored Crisco in this recipe? I thought I had regular, but I don't and I'm not going back out tonight. I was just wondering the flavor results. I would also take a recommendation for a good all butter recipe. Thanks ahead of time! :)

AIsnt buttered flavored Crisco neon yellow? That could be an issue.

if you are after best flavor i'd recommend using butter over shortening

I agree with Memphis.  I no longer use Crisco at all because my BC was gritty even after I sifted the powdered sugar and creamed the heck out of the butter and shortening.  I also found that the frosting would begin to seperate if left out (while decorating, frosting, coloring, etc.) so it has to be refrigerated constantly.  Use 2 sticks salted butter and 2 sticks of unsalted.  It should still crust without a problem.  I highly recommend using high-ratio shortening next time ;)  Good luck!
