Watermelon Slice Cookies
- 2 packages (about 16 ounces each) refrigerated cookie dough
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- Green and red food coloring
- Mini chocolate chips
Let doughs stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Combine 1 package dough, ¼ cup flour and green food coloring in large bowl, beat with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Wrap and refrigerate 2 hours. Combine remaining package dough, remaining ¼ cup flour and red food coloring in separate large bowl, beat at medium speed until well blended. Shape into 9 inch long log. Wrap and refrigerate 2 hours. Roll out green dough between parchment paper into 9×8 inch rectangle. Place log in center of green rectangle. Fold edges up and around log; press edges to seal. Roll gently to form smooth log. Wrap and freeze 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut log into 3/8 inch thick slices. Cut each slice in half. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Gently reshape, if necessary. Press several mini chocolate chips into each slice for watermelon seeds. Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool on cookie sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
