These cookies were a big hit !!! They are so cute and taste good too. Although I think next time, I might sprinkle a little bit of sugar on them before baking to give them that "sugar cookie" taste.
I didn't follow the directions as written. Instead, I colored 1/4 of the dough green and the rest red. I then shaped the red into a log with a flat bottom, rolled out the green and covered the red log with a thin layer of the green - then refrigerated the log. The next morning, I just sliced the cookies, added the chips and baked - very easy!
These cookies are absolutely tedious, but they are cute as can be. I will be making watermelon slice cookies again, but not with this recipe. I found the dough temperamental to work with, crumbling and cracking all over my board. So I would recommend "Sugar Cookie Cutouts" for the base of this recipe for ease of use and a slightly better flavor. Thank you for the idea, Linda =)
What a tedious cookie to make! But what awesome results! Not for people who like the easy way out. I made it even harder on myself because I didn't have mini chocolate chips so I ended up individually cuting the regular chips in half (insane I know)! But everyone was impressed and they taste great. I washed an empty soup can to cut out the circles and that seemed to be the perfect size baked for 8 min. Cute, cute, cute cookies!
This cookie was a huge success at my daughters 2nd grade garden party. I doubled the recipe easily. The cookies not only looked great, they were very tasty. I had to thin the icing mixture with a bit more water.
just use butter
These take some time to make, but what a cute cookie to make! (This would be great for kids on a rainy day.) I didn't have the mini chips and i cut my big ones in half like another reviewer, and that is just plain crazy! next time i'll wait til i go to the store! I added about 8 drops of food coloring to the red batter, rolled them out using powdered sugar instead of flour, and baked them for just over 8 min. Take them off the sheet quickly, the ones i let set for a couple of minutes i almost didn't get off the pan. I wanted a little more finished look so i piped a white line (the rine) using a ziploc baggie snipped at the end after I frosted with the green. A made the white (about 1 c powdered sugar and T water) almost too thick to pipe so it wouldn't run over the green. Next time i think i might add some more sugar to the dough (1/4 c), as it wasn't quite sweet enough for my sugar cookie preference. Picture perfect summer cookies! EDIT: these cookies ended up being terribly crumbly. They were perfectly cooked but they just didn't keep well. Would use a different sugar cookie base next time.
really fun and easy to make! super delicious! I making this for different occasions! Awesome cookie!!!
A great idea but it didnt work out for me and the frosting made the cookies all soggie and they fell apart plus the cookie part wasnt the best tasting
