Apple & Brie Quesadillas with Whole Wheat Tortillas

Whole Wheat Tortillas served up as Grilled Apple & Brie Quesadillas with an Apple Compote
Our next door neighbor over bought on some groceries and offered us some, so they wouldn't go to waste...so we had her over for dinner!  This is part of what MaMa made when she came over, as a large round of brie was one of the grocery items our neighbor had shared with us.  These Apple and Brie Quesadillas on Whole Wheat Tortillas were absolutely delicious!

Apples & Brie take your taste buds on an unexpected twist for an anything but typical quesadilla!
    Ingredients for Whole Wheat Tortillas:
    Ingredients for Grilled Apple and Brie Quesadillas with an Apple Compote:
    • 1/2 lb brie cheese, cut into thin strips
    • 2 apples, sliced thin
    • 1- 8 oz jar of strawberry jam
    • 1/4 c applesauce
    • 1 pinch of cinnamon
      Directions for Tortillas:
      • Whisk together the dry ingredients, make a well in the center for the liquids. Using a fork stir in the liquids, keep stirring until a ball of dough forms, then use your hands to knead the dough a few times. Divide the dough into 8-10 small balls.
      • Heat your cast iron skillet on medium-high. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the small balls until the dough is no more than 1/8 inch thick. Cook on each side for 30-40 seconds.
      Directions for Apple and Brie Quesadillas:
      • Preheat a grill pan over medium heat. Prep the pan with cooking spray before cooking the first quesadilla. Place a layer of cheese on the tortilla and then layer the apples and top with another tortilla. Place on the grill pan for and cook for about 3 minutes on each side.
      • For the compote, add the jam, applesauce and cinnamon to a medium sized microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 1 minute.

      We found the recipe for the quesadillas and compote on FoodNetwork.com and thought it was a perfect way to use up the brie the neighbor had shared with us!
