Hi has been more than 3 months since i last wrote here, hmmm I think I've lost my blogging mojos huhuhu ... but worry not coz  I'm now actively posting all my baking n my ramblings in the Instagram .... you can follow me at @nurpian04 ...

So here I'm sharing the latest cookies that I made for my munchkins ...Slice Watermelon Cookies...these cookies actually was adapted from my favorite icebox cookie recipe which I sourced from my baking book "I love Macarons by Hisako Ogitha"

150g butter, softened
100g sugar
2 egg yolks1 teaspoon vanilla
250g All purpose flour
red and green food coloring
1/3 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar til light and fluffy. Then stir in egg and vanilla.  Then add flour and stir well.  divide the dough into 3 and tint the red and green colour like below picture

Wrap all  it in plastic wrap and put in freezer to set up.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the plain dough into a rectangle that is about 3 1/2 inches by 8 inches. Unwrap the chilled red dough and roll it up into the plain dough.  Make sure you wrap it snuggly.  Roll it around on the counter to seal the two layers together well. Wrap back up and freeze til firm.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the green dough into a 3 1/2 inch by 9 inch rectangle.  Roll the chilled dough up snuggly in the green dough.  Roll to seal the layers together.  Wrap back up in plastic wrap and chill in freezer until firm.
Preheat oven to 170C.  Unwrap dough and cut into slices just under 1/4 inch.then cut it into half . Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Lightly press mini chocolate chips into the red part of each cookie slice.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until firm. 
Makes about 30 cookies
