If you are looking for a butter which is easier to spread than regular 
butter mix up a batch of "Better Butter" as defined in Laurels Kitchen 
Bread Book. Blend one cup of oil (we use either canola or extra virgin 
olive oil) with one cup of softened butter, 2 Tbls. water, 2 Tbls. 
non-instant milk powder, 1/4 tsp. lecithin and 1/2 tsp. salt (optional). 
This mixture has considerably less saturated fat than straight butter and 
is much easier to spread when cold.
