  • Cook Time 10 min


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Country Crock® Baking Sticks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 bag (12 oz.) HERSHEY'S® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. PLUS 2 TSP. water
  • Red food coloring
  • Small round green candies, cut in half
  • Raisins


  1. For COOKIES, preheat oven to 375°. Beat Country Crock® Baking Sticks, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Beat in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips until every spoonful of dough has some of the chips.
  2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart. Lightly press dough with dampened fingers to flatten.
  3. Bake 9 to 10 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.
  4. For GLAZE/DECORATIONS, stir confectioners sugar and water in bowl until smooth. Remove some to another bowl and set aside. Tint remaining red with red food coloring. Spread red glaze over cookies. Add a raisin "stem" and a halved green candy "leaf". Let stand at least 20 minutes or until glaze starts to set.
  5. Spoon white glaze into resealable plastic bag. Snip off a small piece from one corner and pipe messages over cookies. Let stand until glaze sets.
