  1. Cream butter in a mixer bowl with batter blade until light and fluffy. Add in egg and water and mix well, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl.
  2. While mixer is on low, slowly add in the cookie mix. Mix until the dough forms and pulls away from sides.
  3. Divide dough in half leaving one half in the mixer bowl and the other half in another bowl.
  4. Using a blender or food processor, process strawberries into a fine powder. Knead the strawberry powder into one of the dough halves until incorporated thoroughly.
  5. In the other dough half, knead in the lemonade mix (and food coloring, if using) until incorporated thoroughly.
  6. Form each dough half into a log about 14-15" long. Place logs side by side on plastic wrap and press together gently. Cover completely with the plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
