Preheat oven to 375.

On medium speed, beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla (or anise). In a separate bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Gradually add to sugar mixture on low speed until ingredients form a dough.

On a floured board, shape the dough into logs, about 3x8 inches in size. Place on greased baking sheet for about 20 -25 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove to cooling rack.
