Country Crock for the Holidays and Giveaway

by Nicole on December 19, 2012

I love cooking for the holidays and my family often uses Country Crock when preparing our food!

Holiday season is right around the corner and Country Crock would love to help make your holiday preparation a little easier this year. Holiday meals aren’t complete without veggies, and we all have that one special dish we can’t wait to prepare…perhaps grandma’s famous candied sweet potatoes or Aunt Joan’s green bean casserole?

My favorite side dish is corn casserole and I use Country Crock to keep the calories down and the taste up! I used to use butter but since everyone watches their calories and fat I tried using Country Crock one year and got even more compliments on the dish – so Country Crock it is!

Here is a Country Crock recipe for baked spiced squash that I thought looked awesome! I will be trying this for sure!

Baked Spiced Squash

Baked Spiced Squash


  • 2 Tbsp. Country Crock® Spread
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or pancake syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 medium butternut squash, halved and seeded


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Lightly grease baking sheet; set aside.
  3. Combine all ingredients except squash in small bowl.
  4. Arrange squash cut side up on baking sheet; brush with 1/2 of the Spread mixture.
  5. Bake 45 minutes or until squash is tender, brushing with remaining Spread mixture halfway through cooking.
