What You Need

cup  butter or margarine, softened
cup  packed brown sugar
pkg.  (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
cups  flour
tsp.  baking soda
oz.  BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
 Decorations: assorted small candies, raisins, sprinkles, colored sugars, JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

BEAT first 4 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until blended. Mix flour and baking soda; gradually add to pudding mixture, beating well after each addition. Shape into ball.

ROLL out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out dough using 4-inch bear-shaped cookie cutter; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Reroll scraps and use to cut additional cookies. Decorate with small candies, raisins or sprinkles for eyes, mouth and buttons, pressing decorations lightly into dough to secure.

BAKE 12 to 14 min. or until slightly firm. Let stand on baking sheets 2 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.

MELT chocolate; spread onto bottom halves of bears for the pants or skirts. Use remaining chocolate to attach remaining decorations. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Enjoy one serving of these festive cookies with a cold glass of fat-free milk.
Special Extra
Mix 1 tsp. ground cinnamon with the flour and baking soda before mixing with other ingredients as directed.
If dough is too soft to roll out immediately after mixing, refrigerate it up to 1 hour or until of desired firmness.
