Cream Cheese Pie Crust - Replace Half Butter w/Cheese?

I've been researching cream cheese pie crust recipes and have seen two basic types:

1. flour, butter and cream cheese
2. flour, butter, cream cheese, water, vinegar (or other acid) and maybe baking powder

The second is more like a regular pie crust with cream cheese added in for the fat.

My question: can I convert any regular pie crust recipe just be replacing half of the fat (butter and/or shortening) with cream cheese?
