In a large mixing bowl, beat Gold n Soft® Margarine with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add 1 cup of the flour, baking powder, sugar, egg, milk, and vanilla.
Mix until thoroughly combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.
Stir in remaining 1 cup of flour. Divide the dough in half.
Cover and chill for 1 or 2 hours or until easy to handle. Dough may be chilled overnight and removed from the refrigerator 1 hour before rolling.
Preheat oven to 375º F.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until the edges are firm and the bottoms are slightly browned.
Remove the cookies and cool on a rack. Frost and decorate
Note: Instead of frosting, cookies may be sprinkled with colored sugar or candies prior to baking.
