We are already halfway through the year! So far, I’ve had no regrets on my decision to do a new riff on my favorite sugar cookie recipe each month. Well, minus the chocolate sugar cookies which will surely reappear again in the next six months. I’ve been waiting all year to make these easy summery watermelon sugar cookies. No special flavors, just some food coloring and chocolate sprinkles to show you really can eat sugar cookies whenever you want!
I can’t take full credit for this idea, I’ve seen watermelon sugar cookies at the store and all over Pinterest, and in many different creative and cute forms. My version can be filed under “easiest possible way” as they are just round sugar cookies with some pink frosting and chocolate sprinkles (although mini chocolate chips would also work great here). Part of my goal to make a new sugar cookie every month this year was to tackle easy and approachable ways to decorate the cookies – pastry arts can often be frustrating and difficult for me. I’m trying to show myself (and whoever chooses to read this blog) that there are tons of ways to make cute cookies without making royal icing (which omg is def not nearly as good as buttercream frosting).
