Treat Day Wednesday–Happy National Watermelon Day!

Well when I saw that it was National Watermelon Day I had to do something and since my kids love watermelon, it was an easy choice!

When I asked the girls what they wanted for treat day they said sugar cookies, so combine the two and this is what you get, voila!


I had thought of using chocolate as the seeds but got a resounding “NO” from Abby so I used a gourmet writer and drew them on.  They look pretty good, in my opinion!


And in typical fashion you can’t have watermelon without bites taken out of it!



I’ve had some questions about the cookie cutter I used.  I just used a round cutter and cut them into halves and quarters.  Then I used a fluted cutter and cut out the bite marks. 

Thanks for looking!
