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.

Cook time: 10-15 minutes

1/4 cup red raspberries
1/4 cup cranberries, warmed in microwave in covered dish until softened

2. Tortilla assembly: distribute the ingredients equally among four of the tortillas, then top with the other four tortillas.
3. Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is melty. Or, if pan frying, cook on medium heat for 2 minutes each side.
