Can I use just butter instead of a butter/shortening mix in my gingerbread cookies?

The recipe I have from Epicurious calls for 1/2 stick of unsalted butter and 1/2 a stick of vegetable shortening. I know each acts a little differently.

Can I get away with using just a full stick of butter (How paula Deen of me) instead of using icky hydrogenated oils? Will they turn out OK?

I want to make cut out cookies!
