Let's Make It
Beat first 4 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Refrigerate 30 min.
Heat oven to 375ºF. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on floured surface. Cut into shapes with 3-inch cutters. Place on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 3 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, beat powdered sugar, milk and corn syrup until blended. Spoon 3/4 of the icing into resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Spoon remaining icing into 2 resealable plastic bags; tint icing in one bag with 1/4 tsp. red food coloring, then tint remaining icing with 1/4 tsp. green food coloring.
Snip small corner from bottom of each bag. Pipe plain icing onto cookies, then pipe red and green icings into stripes on cookies. Swirl with toothpick.
Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.
Making cookies is a fun activity for the whole family. Enjoy a walk after baking the cookies.
For best results, gently shake the iced cookies to form an even layer of glaze before adding the colored icings.
