3 Kiddos Favorite "Dessert" Quesadillas

Mary Compton


3 of our 4 grandkids live a 4-hour drive away, and when we get together, the 2 oldest (ages 3 & 4) like to cook/bake w/me, just as they do w/their Mommy. Today we made a fun snack; they prepared, while I grilled for them. With this simple treat, the possibilities are endless to suit anyone's appetite/tastes! This is what we "cooked" w/the blueberries we had!

Any amount you wish to prepare!


10 Min




package whole wheat flatout "fold-it" bread
8-oz. tub "mixed berry" spreadable cream cheese
1 or 2
cups fresh blueberries
cinnamon & powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash blueberries; drain/dry/set aside. Any fresh berry or fresh fruit will work...you may have to slice/dice larger fruit; not too thick in order for even heating, w/out burning outside of quesadilla.
Spread layer of cream cheese over one entire side of the flatbread. Pita Pockets, Tortillas, etc. are great to use, also, any spreadable cream cheese flavor [plain or otherwise] works!
Place however many berries you want onto one half of the flatbread...then "fold-it" and slighty press down w/palm of hand [or wide spatula]. The girls really loved this whole part of the recipe!
Grill on pre-heated/medium heated stove-top cast iron griddle [or whatever you use for making quesadillas/grilled cheese sandwiches] 'til cheese has melted around the berries/fruit or 'til outside is golden/a slight bit crisp. You might want to use canola baking spray on the griddle [or pan that you use].
After quesadillas have been grilled, place them on a platter and lightly sprinkle small amount of cinnamon/powdered sugar mixture over top side ...or as w/my Little Gals, they wanted to dip into a very small amount, on a plate of their own.
