Fats?

So I'm wondering, has anyone tried using avocado as a butter substitute in cooking?
I was just thinking about like, puff pastries for example, traditionally require cold real deal butter and you can't even use margarine or it won't have the right effect on the dough because things like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter are too high in water content and don't have enough fat to hold the dough together.

So a vegan alternative to the needed high-fat content in butter for cooking purposes would be....? I've never tried Earth Balance since they don't sell it where I live so that stuff is also a mystery to me. Is it more like a spread, or is it hard and waxy like real butter?
