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

We love the color of these strawberry sandwich cookies. Not only are these easy cookies pretty, but they are also delicious. The sweet cookies are soft and chewy. Stuffed inside is a silky smooth cream cheese mousse filling. Combined with the fresh strawberries, these make an impressive dessert.
