Directions

  1. In a very large heatproof bowl continually whisk egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt over a pan of simmering water until sugar dissolves and mixture reaches 160 degrees F.
  2. Remove from water. Beat with a mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add butter, a small piece at a time, until mixture thickens and becomes smooth and spreadable (mixture will look thin and a little curdled, but will thicken as butter is added). Stir in vanilla bean seeds and vanilla.
  3. In a food processor or blender process or blend strawberries until smooth. Press through a fine mesh strainer (you should have 3/4 cup puree). Beat or whisk strained strawberry mixture into the frosting.
