These are okay, but my mom used to make some amazing ones using watermelon jello mix in the dough. It added a lot more flavour.


These cookies look wonderful... But they have no taste, and their texture is not my favourite kind. Next time, I'll make a shortbread cookie dough, tint it red, and so on, instead of baking these tasteless cookies. Didn't have decorator sugar, so I made a glaze by myself, omitting egg white, made out of 1 C confectionner's sugar, 2 T milk and 10 drops green food coloring.


Don't use the regular sized chocolate chips. They're too big. Use the mini chips. This cookie is great for a summer BBQ. Lots of Ooooos and Aaaaaahs.
