When I first saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen, it looked so interesting that I knew I needed to make them. The texture was really smooth and quite unlike any cookie I've ever tasted. After tasting the first one out of the oven, I wasn't blown away, but thought it was pretty good. But then I found that I couldn't stop eating them... especially with the dusting of powdered sugar. It's a deadly recipe. Secretly addicting you to the strawberry creamness. We loved them!

Roll the chilled batter into 1″ sized balls and then roll them in powdered sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey.
