Watermelon Cookies

I have made these since my girl's were little, they were one of their favorite cookies. I will post a picture soon.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon coconut or Peppermint extract
3 drops red food coloring
1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate
green sugar

1.Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl.
2.Beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer at medium speed until fluffy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Stir in egg, milk, and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture, mixing well. Add a small amount of red food coloring to color dough as desired, beating until blended. Shape dough into a ball; cover and chill at least 3 hours.
3.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
4.Divide dough 3/4 red and 1/4 with no food coloring added. Roll red into a cylinder and freeze, roll dough out large enough to wrap around the red dough. Slice into circles and then the circle's in half. Use a small amount of water and use it to moisten the outer side of the white dough, then press into green sugar until the outer rim is covered. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press several chocolate mini chocolate chips in each cookie. Repeat with remaining dough.
5.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (do not brown). Cool on wire racks"
