Red, White and Blue month marches on.
This week I wanted to do something completely different.
I had found a recipe for lemon cooler cookie and was going to use it for citrus month but never did.
As I was looking at red or blue fruits I thought about the watermelon.
What is more summer like than a water melon?
However, the fruit holds too much water and I think it would ruin a cookie.
Instead, I ordered watermelon extract.
I thought about using watermelon leather from Trader Joe’s but then I realized that the local store sells watermelon and there is always some flavored water at the bottom of the container.
And I had bought watermelon jelly when I saw it at Trader Joe’s.
And the watermelon cooler was born.
Of course I didn’t coat it with powdered sugar like you’re supposed to for a cooler.
Nobody has time for that.
