Another semi-homemade dessert

We went to a game night at friend's home yesterday and in lieu of a rich and chocolaty dessert we took mini-fruit pizzas instead. I saw the recipe on the Pillsbury website a few weeks ago and bookmarked it in hopes that I'd have an occasion to make them soon. Now that strawberries are back in season I am always looking for an excuse to eat them! These were quick to make and tasted great! We are still chowing down on the leftovers! I used fruit I had on hand, strawberries, kiwis, and mandarin oranges.

Mini Fruit Pizzas (made by Julia)

1(18-oz.) pkg. (20 cookies) Pillsbury® Ready to Bake!™ Refrigerated Sugar Cookies
1(8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1/2cup powdered sugar
10fresh strawberries, quartered
1kiwi fruit, peeled, cut in half lengthwise and cut into 10 slices
1/2cup fresh blueberries
1/2cup fresh raspberries

1 . Bake cookies as directed on package. Cool 10 minutes or until completely cooled.
2 . Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine cream cheese, limeade concentrate and powdered sugar; beat until smooth.
3 . Spread each cooled cookie with 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Arrange fruit on top of each. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours.
