Course: Breakfast, Brunch
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4


  • 4 large burrito sized flour tortillas
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp Imperial granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium apples, thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • melted butter
  • mixture of cinnamon & sugar


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, & cinnamon. Whip together until smooth and completely incorporated.
  • Spread 1/4 of the mixture evenly out over one side of a tortilla. Layer apples over one 1/2 of the tortilla. Fold over to close.
  • Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a flat bottomed skillet over medium low heat. When melted, transfer the quesadilla to the pan. Cook 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. 
  • Using two spatulas, flip the quesadilla, cooking another 1-2 minutes, until that side's also golden brown. Repeat for the remaining 3 quesadillas.
  • Using a basting brush, lightly brush one side of a cooked, crisp quesadilla with melted butter, sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Flip the quesadilla, repeat, and do for all of the remaining quesadillas.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut the warm quesadillas into wedges and serve immediately.
