Watermelon Snickerdoodles

I made some Watermelon Lavender Lemonade yesterday and I had a bit of watermelon pulp left. I didn't want to just toss it out so I decided to see if it would act like applesauce in replacing some of the fat in a cookie recipe. These turned out fantastic!! A delicious cookie with just a hint of summer-y watermelon flavor!

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup watermelon pulp
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs

3  cups all purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350

Beat together shortening, watermelon pulp and sugar until smooth.

Add in eggs and beat until combined (but don't over beat)

In another bowl combine flour, tartar, soda and salt.

With the mixer on low slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture.

Beat until well combined

In a shallow dish combing the rolling sugar and cinnamon.

Roll about 1 TB of dough into a ball and roll in the sugar mixture. Place on an ungreased baking sheet

flatten slightly with your finger tips.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on the sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
