Watermelon Cookies!

Yesterday was National Watermelon Day. It was a rainy, rainy day at our house. It clearly didn’t feel like Summer.  And eating juicy watermelon outside on the porch was definitely not an option. Darn it.

So we opted to make Watermelon cookies! My very festive cousin introduced us to watermelon cookies years ago. However, her version and many versions you’ll find online are a bit more time intensive (like chill the dough overnight) and required ingredients I didn’t have on hand.

You know me, I’m all about SIMPLE. 

So I got to work re-creating watermelon cookies and simplifying the process.


Simplified Watermelon Cookies

Well folks, we didn’t have overnight to wait. With a little improvisation, we had watermelon cookies after all. And while they may not be as perfect looking, they still look just as adorable.


What You Need:


How to Make These Cute Cookies:

  • Make up your favorite sugar cookie recipe 
  • Before baking, add some green food coloring into your dough and stir it very well.
  • Use a large glass or cookie cutter to cut circles in your dough.
  • Then cut each circle in half to make watermelon slices. Seriously, how cute are these?

The key to good sugar cookies is to not over bake! Bake these for 7 minutes or less.

Use your favorite frosting recipe, add some red food coloring and don’t forget the mini chocolate chips placed in the frosting upside down. Eating fresh, seedless watermelon is awesome, but these cookies need seeds.

They totally make the cookies cute. Wouldn’t you agree?


Now you know how simple these cookies are to make!
