Strawberry Lemonade Cookies

I was looking for something to give the boys' teachers for a little "thankyou", as today was the last day of school.  This is what I ended up with.  I thought they turned out not only cute but delicious!

Strawberry Lemonade Cookies

1 box Lemon cake mix
1/2 c shortening
2 eggs

Mix all ingredients until well combined.  With a small cookie scoop place balls onto a baking sheet.  Lightly press to flatten a little bit. Bake at 350 for 9-10 mins.

3 T butter, softened
3 T strawberry puree *see notes* (5-6 strawberries)
1 cup powdered sugar

Combine all ingredients, and mix until smooth.
Frost the bottom side of one cooled cookie, and sandwich it with a second cookie.

To make strawberry puree, dice several berries (about 5-6) and place in a saucepan with 1-2 tsp water.  Bring to a boil, and use a fork to mash berries.  Continue cooking until puree is reduced by about half.  Let puree cool completely before using.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen
