Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
{From Paula Deen}

1/4 cup butter
2 packages cream cheese
1 package frozen strawberries, thawed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups powdered sugar

*Paula's recipe called for 1 package cream cheese and 7 cups of sugar, but we modified it so the icing would be thicker.

1. Puree strawberries in a blender.
2. With an electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until creamy.
3. Add the vanilla extract and 1/4 cup of the strawberry puree. {The leftover puree makes a great ice cream topping.} Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth.
