Apple Quesadillas

Want a quick and easy treat for the kids?  This was fun to make and the kids went crazy for it. I made about 4 of these and they gobbled them up in no time.  I had to wash the pan in between tortillas as the brown sugar caramelizes to the pan but that was okay.  It came off just fine.  The vanilla ice cream just brought it over the top!  

Apple Quesadilla Recipe

2 - 3 flour tortillas
1/2 an apple, sliced thin
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsp. chocolate chips, I used mini's
2 tbsp. walnuts or pecans

Brush tortillas will melted butter.  Put one tortilla butter side down on your pan.  Layer half of it with apples, chocolate and nuts.  Fold the other side over and sprinkle the tortilla with just a bit of brown sugar. Let it sit for just a minute in the hot pan, flip over.  Sprinkle the other half of tortilla with brown sugar and flip. Do this pretty fast as you only want the brown sugar side on the hot pan for about 10 - 15 seconds as it will burn.  Flip, leave it for about 10 seconds and transfer to a plate.  The brown sugar gets a bit hard and caramelized.  So delicious!

Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.

  1. OH YUM! We make the tortilla "chips" where you brush with melted ghee and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on them... but YUM!!! This looks sinful and easy!
