Watermelon Slice Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 3 dozen
Made these for some little girls at church tonight who love watermelon. They were a hit! I did NOT use watermelon jello.
When you use the JEllo, do you use 3/4 of jello, or a mix of jello and sugar to make 3/4 cup?
I haven't tried these yet, but sure will. This is a reply to a comment to Debby54 about slicing the cookies. What I use, to cut just about any rolled cookie, biscuits, rolls, etc., is to get a length of dental floss, maybe 18 or 20 inches long. Put the middle of the floss underneath the roll of cookie, or whatever, bring the ends of the floss straight up, crisscross them, put the one in your left hand into your right hand and the one in your right hand into your left hand, and pull quickly. The action of the crossing floss creates a scissor type action and cuts the cookie without flattening it out. Really simple, efficient and fun:)
I followed the suggestion of using the watermelon jello. It was fun to have the taste match the look. People were more excited about the watermelon look before they even tasted them.
Well, I haven't made these yet, but would like to try them for this year's 4th of July family picnic. I don't quite understand the instructions. #1. Is 3 1/2 inches the measurement for the diameter or length of dough roll?#2. When attaching (short end) red to white, do you start to roll it up from the red end or the white end? The directions really need to be clarified or perhaps a video showing how to make.
Made these again using the watermelon jello. Taste just like watermelon, adding to the look of the cookie. Will be my go to for summer cookouts.
This recipe turned out well for my first attempt. I did not have enough dough for the white part of the rind and I did overcook the first batch. I will try again, maybe use the watermelon jello to give it more taste. All in all, fun recipe.
I substitute watermelon jello mix for sugar and they taste like watermelon as well!
love it so good
Fabulous! Will make again and double the recipe. Grandkids loved the.
