Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake

This recipe is a family favorite; I make it every holiday! Sometimes I am asked to make two - my older sister loves this cake; therefore, I have to make her one just so she can take it home. My daughter-in-law loves this cake just as much also. So, around the holidays, this is a MUST!
