I seem to be hearing a lot about the health benefits of using coconut oil in baking.  I have used it in a varitey of baked goods, and for the most part I am happy with the results.  I have used it successfully in place of oil as well as in place of butter or margerine.  Since coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, I had thought it should work to substitue in place of palm shortening.  Has anyone tried this?  How did it work?
