Apple Pie Quesadillas

  • 4 T. butter, divided
  • 2 tart baking apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 T. granulated sugar
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1/4 c. caramel sauce, warmed plus more for garnishing
  • 1 c. cinnamon sugar

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and sauté until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the sugars, nutmeg, and cinnamon and cook the mixture until it is soft and caramelized, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat.

To assemble a quesadilla, spread the caramel sauce over one tortilla. Top the sauce with the cooked apples and then the second tortilla.

Wipe the skillet clean and melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Add the quesadilla and cook, flipping halfway through, until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Immediately coat both sides in cinnamon-sugar. Slice the quesadilla into 4 sections and stack two sections together per serving. Serve warm drizzled with more caramel sauce.

  • Yields: 1 quesadilla (each quesadilla is 2 servings)
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
