Watermelon is a brightly colored fruit that is synonymous with summer. This recipe showcases colorful watermelon-shaped cookies. Red, green, and white cookies are dotted with mini chocolate chips.
These cookies are great for picnics and parties. Moist and crunchy, these cookies are also perfect pairs for coffee and tea.
• 3/4 cup of butter
• 3/4 cup of sugar
• 1 egg
• Half a tsp of vanilla extract
• 2 cups of all-purpose flour
• 1/4 tsp of baking soda
• Red and green gel food coloring
• 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips
The cookies need to bake for 9 to 11 minutes. The cookie dough needs to set in the fridge for a total of 5 hours. Serves 3 to 4.
In a bowl, cream butter and sugar using a mixer or a whisk until well combined.
Crack open an egg. Mix vanilla and whisk together.
In another bowl, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix together.
Gradually place flour to the butter mixture.
Set aside 1 cup of dough.
Add red food coloring to the rest of the dough. Knead and roll into a 6-inch long log.
Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in the fridge for 2 hours.
Divide the 1 cup dough into 2 equal parts.
Add green food coloring to one of the dough.
Knead the dough until covered entirely in green.
Cover both of the dough parts with plastic wrap.
Let them sit in the fridge for 1 hour.
Lightly add flour on a flat surface.

Cover the log with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Slice into 1/4 to 1/8 slices.
Cut the cookies in half.
