Watermelon cookies are the perfect treat to welcome summer!  I made mine from all store bought ingredients so they whip up in a matter of minutes but look like you have been a hardworking baker!  They taste even better because they are so cute!!

Watermelon Cookies

Ok I might have a small addiction to all things Watermelon!  I love the fruit itself, I love the watermelon flavor like in candy and snow cones, I love the colors, I love it all!  {maybe not the seeds but who likes seeds?}  I wanted to kick off summer with a sweet treat for the boys and Watermelon Cookies fit the bill!

Watermelon Sugar Cookies

These could not be easier because everything is store bought.  You can certainly make a batch of your favorite sugar cookie recipe but Pillsbury worked just fine for mine!  A bit of green food coloring and I bought the hot pink icing just like that  I didn’t even have to use food coloring on that!  {I told you this was simple!}

Watermelon Cookies Funfetti Icing

  I added some mini-chocolate ships for the seeds {these seeds I like!} and there you have it!  Couldn’t be easier and could not be cuter!

Whole Watermelon Cookies

I started by piping some icing with a small tip around the edge and then used an offset spatula to apply the icing to the center.  Then some I piped the whole thing like above.  Either work and both taste equally delicious ;-)

Note:  While the cookies are still warm, use a spatula or knife to cut the cookies in half to form wedges.  I left some whole to be whole watermelons!
