Nothing says summer...

...quite like watermelon!  At least not for me!  And now that summer is just around the corner (our summer actually started two months ago, but whatever!) I plan to have some in my fridge all the time! 

When I lived in the northwest, good watermelons were pretty much a given...in Arizona, not so much!  I am FOREVER on a quest for a good, sweet, watermelon but it is definitely a "hit or miss" mission!  Thankfully, they are pretty cheap, so it is not like I waste a lot of money when I get one that is not so great!

Factoid...I LOVE salt on my watermelon!  Hey, don't knock it till you have tried it!  (Shhhh,...don't tell anyone, but I put it on my cantaloupe too!)  This is something I picked up from my dad many years ago!  I just love that "sweet and salty" thing...give it a try next time, you just might love it as much as I do!

Where am I going with all this, you ask?  Well, cookies of course!  The other day I had leftover black icing, so I printed up a watermelon "seed" template and made some Royal Icing Transfers.  I was dying to put them to use, so I whipped up a few cookies:


Whatcha' think?  Make your mouth water?  No worries, no salt was added in the making of these cookies, but now that I think about it...a little white sanding sugar thrown on top would have been sort of fun!

I have been battling the horrid temperatures in my garage to work on my tool box...I may have a little "teaser" for you very soon!  Till then...

Happy Baking!

I put salt on my watermelon and cantaloupe too! Do you put sugar on your sliced tomatos? Yum!

Love the watermelon cookies, they are perfect.

Looking forward to seeing the toolbox. If it the size I think it is I would use it to store table clothes, cloth napkins and placemats.

I live near Lake Michigan and we are having our first warm temps today. Last year we roasted so I have been enjoying the cool temps.

I had no idea people ate watermelon or cantaloupe WITHOUT salt! I'm not sure what you call cheap, but our watermelons here in Florida run between $8 to $10 for the small ones and rarely do we get a REALLY good one. I think I will stick to watermelon cookies! They look yummy.
