Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Cool: 15 minutes


1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet

1 1/2 cups light whipped topping (thawed from frozen)

1 cup chopped strawberries, or more for topping

1/4 cup reduced/low-sugar strawberry preserves


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.

Stretch dough into a large rectangle, about 13” x 9” and 1/4 inch thick. Evenly cut dough into 12 squares. Place each square in a muffin cup, and press it into the bottom and up along the sides.

Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 10–12 minutes.

Let cool completely, about 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, fold strawberries into whipped topping.

Evenly distribute preserves among the dough cups, followed by the whipped topping mixture. 


HG Alternative: If you can't find Recipe Creations dough, go for refrigerated crescent roll dough. Then firmly pinch/seal up the perforations for a seamless sheet.

HG Tip: If you're not eating/serving these immediately, store the baked dough cups at room temperature in a sealed bag or container, and store the filling in a sealed container in the fridge.
