Caramel Apple Quesadillas

Caramel Apple Quesadillas make a delightful dessert quesadilla. Crispy flour tortillas sandwich fresh diced apples and caramel sauce. A coating of cinnamon sugar, caramel sauce drizzle and a scoop of vanilla ice cream takes this dessert over the top.

I have a serious sweet tooth so I love sweet versions of foods that are typically savory, like these easy dessert quesadillas. They are drool worthy. Just look at that vanilla ice cream dripping down the edges of the crispy cinnamon-sugar coated quesadilla.

Great Fall Recipe

Flavored with cinnamon and a little nutmeg, these apple quesadillas are a great fall dessert.

What Type Of Apples To Use?

A fresh apple filling sweetened with brown sugar and cinnamon is the filling for these quesadillas. I like to use Granny Smith apples. I love their tartness combined with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Honey Crisp are also delicious in this recipe.

Simplify The Recipe

If you want to make a super easy apple quesadilla, use a can of apple pie filling instead of making fresh apple filling.

Which Tortillas To Use?

I like to use medium flour tortillas and find them to be just the right size. You can use small tortillas or large if you prefer.
