Watermelon Sugar Cookes

With warm weather approaching what better way to get in the mood for spring than festive cookies? They are easy to make and look like you are crafty with cookies! (even if you are like me and you are terrible with icing!) Fun twist for the typical iced sugar cookie! (

1 roll of sugar cookie dough (You can get the refrigerated kind or the mix in the cake aisle)
1 can hot pink icing
Mini chocolate chips
Green food coloring 

Preheat the oven according to the cookie package.
If you bought the mix kind, make the dough according to the package and add around 10 drops of green food coloring.
If you bought the refrigerated pack, cut up the dough and add 10 drops of food coloring and knead the dough with your hands until the color is evenly spread out through out the dough. 
Roll the dough back into a log and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Slice the cookie log into 1/4 inch slices and place on to the cookie sheet (If you are having a hard time rolling the dough smoothly, you can make small round balls and flatten them out and place them on to the cookie sheet).
Bake the cookies according to the package, remove the cookies before they brown.
Let cool for around 10 minutes before icing. 
Take a knife or spatula and cut the cookies in half to create the crescent shape. 
Add the pink icing and sprinkle on the chocolate chips for the seeds! Mini watermelon cookies! So cute and so yummy! Enjoy!
