what can you use to substitute for vegetable shortening?

Question by answers: what can you use to substitute for vegetable shortening?
We are making gluten free cookies and the recipe calls for 3 tbs. vegetable shortening.
the recipe already has a pretty fair amount of butter, so please don’t suggest we add more as a substitute. I’ve heard that you can use olive oil, is that true? If it is, is there a difference in measurements?
