This one was created for Sherri's Sandwich challenge on 02/13/2012.
Keeping with this weeks rues, all ingredients must be pink, red or white. I chose to include all three. These easy & yummy strawberry cookies are filled with cream cheese mousse and sliced fresh strawberries, then dusted with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
