Cooking Connection



Quick and easy


Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

10 to 15 minutes


6 servings


2  small Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored

2  teaspoons  fresh lemon juice

2  teaspoons  sugar

1/2  teaspoon  ground cinnamon

8  ounces  cream cheese, softened

1/4  cup  powdered sugar

3  tablespoons  butter

1/4  cup  chopped pecans

6  homestyle flour tortillas

3/4  cajeta or caramel topping


Chop apples coarsely; toss with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Combine cream cheese and powdered sugar in a separate large bowl. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over Medium-High heat. Sauté apples and pecans about 5 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat and stir into cream cheese mixture. Return skillet to heat.

Melt 1 teaspoon butter in skillet; tilt skillet to spread butter. Place 1 tortilla in skillet; turn to coat both sides. Heat tortilla 30 to 60 seconds, turning as needed to prevent burning, until tortilla is slightly crispy. Remove skillet from heat. Spoon one-sixth apple-cream cheese mixture (about 1/3 cup) down center of tortilla. Fold tortilla in half. Press lightly with spatula to close. Place quesadilla on a baking sheet in a Low oven, uncovered, to keep warm.

Repeat step #3 to make 5 more quesadillas. Reduce heat under skillet to Medium or move skillet on and off heat, as needed, to prevent burning.

Serve quesadillas warm and drizzled with cajeta or caramel topping.
