Watermelon Cookies

It’s definitely been a while since I have done a watermelon recipe on the blog! You may remember my watermelon cupcakes from way back in 2012. This recipe is inspired by them. I decided to make a slightly more portable version, in cookie form. They are perfect for summer and bound to be a favorite among the kiddos! If you’re still trying to decide what to bring to your next summer cookout, these should be it.
