Cool fruit treats

Here's an easy spring dessert idea from Pillsbury: Unfold 2 packages of softened Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts and cut 5 round pieces from each crust. Fit pieces over backs of ungreased muffin cups. Prick pastry with a fork and bake at 450 degrees until light golden-brown. Cool completely. Remove from muffin cups. In a large bowl, combine 10 cups of fresh fruit and two 16-ounce jars of strawberry glaze. Refrigerate mixture until chilled. Just before serving, spoon 1/2 cup fruit into each cooled tart shell. Top with whipped topping. Makes 20.
