Butter Flavored Shortening

I have a recipe for molasses cookies that calls for 3 cups of butter-flavored shortening. I don't want to use that (actually, I don't have any; I never buy the stuff). Can I substitute 24 ounces of room-temperature unsalted butter? I hate to waste my recent gift of molasses in a runny, burnt cookie. Thanks for the advice.
