butter substitute

I use fat free yogurt cheese in equal proportions to butter in standard scone 
recipes where you are required to cut butter into the flour mix until the mix 
is crumbly before adding the liquid ingredients.  It works great.  I haven't 
tried this in any other baking yet.

Does anyone know of any replacements for butter/margarine to use in baking? 
I've found FF cream cheese works well in some recipies, applesauce, in things 
containing chocolate I'll often use half yogurt and half butter, and I've 
found this usually improves the flavor. I've heard mashed bananas can be used 
but I haven't actually tried this one and I also don't think it would be very 
good in some recipes. Are there any options I haven't tried yet?
