Watermelon Cookies


My son had to bring cookies to his preschool graduation party today so we came up with this fun spin off our favorite sugar cookie recipe. Collin loved it!

Ingredients:

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Red food coloring
Green food coloring
Mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, soda and salt. Add butter and mix like pie crust. In another bowl beat eggs. Add sugar and vanilla and beat well. Combine the two. Divide and color 1/3 of dough green. Color remaining 2/3 dough red. Roll green dough into rectangle about 12 inches long. Roll red dough into cylinder the length of green dough and place red dough on edge of green dough. Roll green dough around red dough. Pinch seams. Cut into one inch pieces. Place 5-6 mini chips on each cookie for the "seeds". Bake 6-8 minutes. Makes approximately 4 dozen.
