Berry-Brie Apple Quaesadillas

While I was cooking away yesterday, my Mom asked me if I could make us one of her favorite treats. This Quaesadilla is a lovely combination of sweet and savory, with the tart apple, berries and creamy cheese. They make a terrific breakfast or light lunch. Add a little chocolate and it makes a delicious dessert!

You can use pretty much any type of tortilla, baking apple, cheese and berries. I’ve used just about any and all berries, cheddar, even sautéed onions when I had them available. In this one, I use a flax-oat wrap, Brie, Granny Smith apple, and a combination of sweet red raspberries and warmed cranberries.
