Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
First..I love this frosting! That being said...I had a few issues when making it. First, the recipe calls for 1 cup of strawberries...this doesn't yield enough liquid to reduce for the length of time suggested and still have enough to add the required 6tbs for recipe. It works best to have once cup of strawberry puree to reduce..not one cup before you puree them. I only reduced for 15 minutes because it was very thick and there was very little left..1 cup of puree should cure this problem..I ended up with 4tbs of puree. I felt the frosting was coming out to thick as I was mixing it..most likely due to how much I reduced the puree. I followed the recipe using the 4tbs I had and then blended a few more strawberries and added 2tbs of the puree (not reduced)..this thinned out the frosting perfectly. I liked it after I made, but I loved it the next day. As one reviewer pointed out-it is better the next day. This is the only strawberry frosting I will now use. It has an intense and wonderful real strawberry taste. Perfection!
