Bearymelon Cookies by Devin Alexander

Let's face it, kids (big and small) love cookies. By calling these adorable slices of watermelon "cookies" and decorating them a bit, your kids and their friends are a lot more likely to accept them as an after-school snack.

Heck, it's possible word will even get out that you're the cool mom, dad, aunt or uncle on the block, and you'll have kids flocking to your house for these cookies, especially in the summer.

"Cut the Crap" Whipped Topping

Though you may be tempted to use a double boiler for this recipe, I would highly recommend using a saucepan and a large metal or heavy-duty glass mixing bowl that sits on top of the pan (and isn't too much larger than the pan). For maximum results, you need a large bowl so that a lot of air whips into the egg whites, creating volume. I've found that most double boiler inserts aren't quite big enough to allow that.

Please note that every time I've made this recipe, it yields a different amount of whipped topping, ranging from as few as 6 cups to as much as 8 1/2 cups. Even slight variations in the size and temperature of the egg whites, the type of beaters you use, and the size of the bowl can make a difference. I've calculated the nutritional information based on 6 cups. Store any excess whipped topping in the freezer for up to a couple of weeks.
