Yes. The cookie texture will be the same, although the taste will not be as buttery. For a cookie with good flavor like oatmeal cinnamon raisin or chocolate chip, you won't notice the difference.

You could also use unsalted butter instead of Crisco if you don't have any health concerns about butter. Butter flavoring works, but is a substitute flavoring, and real butter as an ingredient has better flavor than substitute flavorings.

Shortening or Crisco, but they are vegetable based instead of animal based fats. You can also use butter, but it has very different flavor and mild solids so it will change the taste a lot. Shortening is the closest substitute for lard, but not as crisp and flaky
