These are so good - a nice soft cookie. I made these with a friend the first time and have made them a couple of more times. My daughter's new favorite cookie.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These strawberry cookies are delicate, soft and sweet. With just a hint a lime in the undertones, they are kind of refreshing. The white chocolate chips and fresh strawberries are a lovely flavor combo. This is a great spring or summer cookie when strawberries are nice and fresh. Very yummy!
