Raw Applesauce as a Butter Substitute

Do you think raw applesauce as in:

1. Chop apples
2. Blend it like hell.

will work as well as regular applesauce as a substitute for butter?

I have successfully used store-bought applesauce almost entirely as a butter substitute but I don't feel like buying those small sealed applesauce plastic cups. And I don't want to take all the time to make "authentic' boiled-in-a-saucepan applesauce.

What do you all think? Has anyone tried just using raw applemash as a butter substitute?
