Preheat oven to 375°. Beat Country Crock® Spread with sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla scraping sides occasionally, until blended. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt just until blended. (Do not overbeat). Using lightly floured hands shape dough by 2 tablespoonfuls into balls. Arrange 3-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Gently press balls into 2-1/2-inch circles. Pinch bottom to form point of "heart".
Gently indent dough in center on top to shape into "heart". Bake 12 to 14 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 2 minutes on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely. Decorate as desired*
