Tangy cream cheese gets a hit of tartness and sweetness from fresh strawberries in this simple-yet-perfect cake filling recipe.
Put cream cheese, butter, and sugar into mixer bowl; mix until creamy. Mix in vanilla. Puree strawberries in a food processor; strain. Mix 3/4 cup puree into cream cheese mixture (reserve remaining puree for Swiss-Meringue Buttercream). Use immediately or refrigerate airtight up to 3 days; stir before using.
