Combining green and yellow sugar gives the outside of this easy cookie the appearance of watermelon rind.
Combine butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and red food color; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into 4 1/2-inch log.

Heat oven to 375°F.
Cut logs in half lengthwise; cut each half into 1/4-inch slices with sharp, serrated knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool completely.

These cookies took a while to get the hang of, but once we did, my mom and I couldn't stop making them. They're adorable and yummy! Very worth the effort.
Very crumbly, and didn't look much like watermelons even after adding food coloring. Not necessarily a bad recipe, but not one I'll make again when there are so many better cookies to make.
