Needless to say, we all slept in on Monday. (Even I slept past 8:00!)
I realize that I probably should have posted this blog before the holiday weekend because it would have been the perfect thing to take to a Labor Day cookout. Oh well, better late than never.
I got the idea for these watermelon cups from my friend Susan about 6 years ago. She described to me how she made these delicate little fruit cups out of watermelon in such detail that I still remember the directions - even years later. (If you know me, you know how remarkable that is because I don't remember much of anything.) These little fruit cups, made out of watermelon are a great way to impress your family and friends. They are simple to make and really yummy.
Cut thick slices of watermelon and lay them flat on a cutting board. Use a large biscuit cutter to cut big circles out of the fruit. Use a smaller biscuit cutter to cut smaller circles inside the larger one, not cutting all the way through to the bottom.
Fill the centers with fresh fruit.
I know that summer is nearly over but there is still time to get a watermelon and make fruit cups. They're elegant enough to serve at a bridal shower and casual enough to serve at a cookout.
