This post is dedicated to a special group of kids! My daughter’s, Jordan, 4th grade class and their super teacher, Mrs. S=)
It’s the last day of school! Yahoo!! After the school bell rings for dismissal, guess what? You’re all officially 5th graders!!! O.M.G!!! So cool!
So you’re probably wondering how I made your watermelon cookies. Well here’s a little presentation to show you how I shaped and decorated your fancy cookies.
Watch and listen closely:
Have your equipment ready! I used two cookie cutters, one, was a large round cutter and the other was a smaller, scalloped cutter. I rolled out the dough with a rolling pin and began to cut the dough with the large cutter first. Then I cut the round cookie dough in half. Now I had two half moon shaped cookies.
Have you figured out how I made the teeth mark on the cookies? I was getting hungry and decided to nibble on the cookies before baking them. Just kidding!
I took the smaller scalloped cutter and cut out a small piece from the right side of the cookie. Then I baked the cookies for 18 minutes in the oven set at 350 degrees. If you ever want to bake out cookies have an adult do this part for you!
After they baked, I let them cool off before icing them. I began with icing that I colored with red and pink food color and then I let them dry before I began icing the watermelon rind in yellow green icing. That had to dry also.
I decided to paint the rind with a little more green food color to make it look more realistic.
Next I added the watermelon seeds with black icing,
Have a great summer and we’ll see each other again in September!
Hugs and stuff, Mrs. C!
