National Sugar Cookie Day is July 9th, and it’s the perfect time to combine a cookie with a summer time favorite: watermelon.
These watermelon cookies were super easy to make thanks to Wilton icing!
Using my favorite sugar cookie recipe, I rolled out the dough and cut it out with a round cookie cutter.
While the cookies cooled, I made my watermelon seeds. For the seeds, I used a chocolate candy roll and pulled off pieces and shaped them into seeds.
I used the Kelly Green Decorator Icing Tube with Tip 7 and a coupler ring and piped an edge on each cookie. Next, I did the same with the White Decorator Icing Tube with Tip 3. Lastly, I used the Red Decorator Icing Tube with Tip 5. These tubes make decorating so simple; knead the tube, add a tip, a coupler ring, and it is time to decorate! The tubes come in a variety of colors so there is no need to mix colors or use bags making them so convenient to use.
The Red Cookie Icing is just as easy to use: remove the cap, the safety seal, and then place in the microwave for a short time. Replace the cap, shake to evenly distribute the icing, and squeeze on the cookies.
I added my seeds and my cookies were complete!
