Subbing for shortening in a pie crust

Japanecdote | Dec 9, 201002:46 PM

I'm planning on making the CI vodka pie crust for a pecan pie and it calls for part butter and part shortening. I can't get shortening where I am, so can I just use all butter for the recipe? Is it an equal trade or would I have to adjust the amount? Thanks!

(Also, if anyone has any good classic pecan pie recipes I'd appreciate them too!)
