Watermelon Cookies ... Summer Time Cookies

I made these super cute cookies for the boys and girls club workers and volunteers.  These were NOT an easy cookie to make and I probably will never make them again, but they were super cute!

If you have the time make these cookies you will be the star of the party!  I found these super cute cookies on Among the Young.  I used Americolor Super Red Food Coloring and Leaf Green Food Coloring, I buy the little ones at Hobby Lobby.  I used Vanilla instead of Almond since I didn't have it on hand that time.

 1 1/2 C. butter
1 1/2 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp almond extract
4 1/2 C. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Food coloring paste (green and red)
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and extract. Add the flour, salt, powder at a low speed. Remove 2 C. dough – set aside. (2/3 C. will be green and 1 1/3 will remain “white”). At low speed, beat in red paste. Shape dough into a 3 1/2 inch cylinder. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours. Wrap green and plain dough separately and chill also.
Reshape red cylinder (so there are no flat sides). Roll out plain dough to 7×8 1/2 rectangle. Roll up around the red cylinder. Roll out green dough to 10×7 1/2. Wrap together and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Next day slice (cut thick!) and bake at 375 for 6-10 minutes. Do NOT overbake!

  5. These are cute. I love the chocolate chips.
    Sometimes when I want an easy sweet treat, I push chocolate chips like that into a banana and eat it.
    I have a feeling my banana trick is a bit easier than making these cookies, but the cookies are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
