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.
