1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large (2 cups) tart apple, sliced 1/8 inch
1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
4 (7-inch) low fat whole wheat tortillas, warmed
cut in half diagonally


Combine brown sugar and butter in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until bubbly. Add apple slices; continue cooking 5-8 minutes or until slices are tender. Stir in dried cranberries. Remove from heat.

Heat 10-inch skillet or electric griddle over medium heat.

Spray 1 side each tortilla with no-stick cooking spray.  Layer each, sprayed-side down, with 1/4 apple mixture and 2 cheese halves. Fold tortillas in half over mixture.

Place 2 quesadillas into skillet. Cook, turning once, 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. (If necessary, wipe out skillet with paper towels.) Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Recipe Tip

For a great topping idea, mix 1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt with 2 teaspoons honey and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Top quesadillas with a dollop of yogurt mixture.
