Strawberries and Cream Cookies

 Super, soft strawberry cookies with fresh and freeze dried strawberries topped with a creamy vanilla buttercream.
Strawberry season is in full bloom right now. I now can get local and fresh strawberries.
Where I live we love strawberries so much we have an annual festival dedicated to strawberries and everything at the strawberry festival contains strawberries.
These cookies here weren't at the festival but they should have since I am making them with strawberries that are about 10 minutes away from me.
If you do not have local strawberries, you can still make these.
I'm using two types of strawberries to make sure I have enough strawberry flavor in them.
The vanilla buttercream is yummy by itself because its so light and fluffy. I'm using vanilla bean paste to give it extra flavor.
