Got this from a friend, and it is great! It is lower in calories, but definately not in taste!!!

Chop enough strawberries to measure 2 cups. Refrigerate remaining whole berries for later use.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, zest and juice in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add COOL WHIP; beat on low speed just until blended. Gently stir in chopped berries. Spread about 2/3 of the Cool Whip mixture onto bottom half of cake. Cover with top of cake and remaining Cool Whip mixture.
Refrigerate for 1 hour. Arrange remaining berries on top of cake before serving.
I have also used blueberries for this recipe also, and it was equally delisious!

I will make this for dessert tonight. Just bought Florida strawberries at the store. Make me feel like summer. Having BB ribs for supper. Thanks for sharing. We are cold today but lucky we did not get the snow that was called for (8 inches).

The cake was good. Well not so much the cake. I purchased it from a deli and it left a lot to be desired. The filling was out-of-this-world. Grandson just loved it. Whole family enjoyed.

Yeah Mary ann, the cake is better if it is homemade (or even a box mix), but I totally agree, the filling is wonderful! Glad you liked it.
