Crisco in Place of Butter or Margarine

Can I substitute Crisco shortening for butter or margarine?
http://www.crisco.com/About_Crisco/faqs.aspx#faq_crust
In general, you can substitute Crisco shortening for butter or margarine in equal amounts. Not only does Crisco shortening have 50% less saturated fat than butter and 0g trans fat per serving, it gives you higher, lighter-textured baked goods.

A few exceptions in which you can't substitute: No-bake cookie recipes

Recipes, such as candies and fudge, where butter or margarine is heated/melted and sugar is added/dissolved

Crisco shortening doesn't contain water, so if you want to get the same results as you get with butter or margarine, adjust the water according to the chart below. (A Crisco cookie with no extra water added is higher and lighter, while a butter cookie is flatter and crispier.) --- CONTINUED at LINK, above---

Chart for substitutions is at link.
