These are not cookie jar cookies. They are delicate and won't keep for long, so don't think about making them ahead. I don't even think freezing them would be a smart idea. Here's what you do. Bake them and then eat them all up. Or, do like I plan to, and give a bunch away. Some neighbor boys are here today playing with my kids; I'll send some home with them when they leave. I'm going to see my parents later tonight at Evan's ball game; I'll send some home with them. Maybe I'll take some out to the mailman if I happen to catch him when he's delivering our mail.
Strawberry Shortcake Cookies...they truly do taste like strawberry shortcake.
