Watermelon Cookies: For 4th of July, picnics, or anytime!

Screen Shot 2017-07-02 at 10.01.57 AMIn June of 1992, we moved from Indianapolis to Muncie, very sad to leave neighbors who we loved dearly.  We soon learned that we had moved into another neighborhood of amazing people.  That summer there was a neighborhood 4th of July parade/picnic, and I made these cookies.  They are so cute on a plate, and pretty tasty to eat!!!

Kids can help add the food coloring to the dough and icing, cut out the shapes, put the chocolate chip “seeds” on the cookie, and roll the crescents in the green icing “rind”.  This recipe comes from Southern Living magazine.
