Cherry Pie Quesadilla
Do you like fresh Cherry Pie and either don’t know how to make a pie crust or you just don’t like to make a pie crust? Cherry Pie filling inside two flour tortillas topped with cinnamon and sugar fixes that problem! These tasted even better than I had hoped for. Learn how quick and easy these are to make with no pie crust to worry about.
I used our quesadilla maker but you could do the same thing in a frying pan, bake in the oven, use your George Foreman grill or even a griddle. All you need to do is cook the tortilla and that doesn’t take long! Use any type of pie filling you want.
I have to believe there are a lot fewer calories in these than regular cherry pie. The taste of the tortilla brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar was delicious!
Melt the butter.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon.
Brush half of the butter on one side of a tortilla. Turn tortilla over and place with the butter side down on a large plate.
Spread pie filling evenly onto the tortilla within 1″ from the edge.
Place another tortilla on top of the cherries. Brush the top with the remaining butter.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over tortilla.
I have a quesadilla maker so I used it to make my pies. I placed my hand under the bottom buttered tortilla and placed the entire pie onto my preheated quesadilla maker. Cook the pie for 7-10 minutes or until the tortillas starts to get stiff and lightly brown. Check it frequently so it doesn’t burn.
Using a large knife, cut pie into pieces. This helps to seal the edges. Serve hot!
Cherry Pie Quesdilla
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 2 flour tortillas
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- Lay one tortilla on a large plate.
- Melt the butter in the microwave. Brush half of the butter on one side of a tortilla. Turn tortilla over and place butter side down on the plate.
- Pour cherry pie filling evenly over the tortilla within 1″ from the edge.
- Place other tortilla on top of the cherries.
- Mix sugar with cinnamon. Brush the rest of the butter on top of the top tortilla. Sprinkle with all of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Preheat quesadilla maker. Slide your hand under the buttered pie and slide onto the quesadilla maker. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until tortilla is slightly brown. Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. Slide off onto a cutting board with a spatula. Using a large knife, cut the pie into pieces immediately. This will help seal the edge. Serve hot!
NOTE: Another way to cook these ( if you don’t have a quesadilla maker) is to use an oven, George Foreman type grill, frying pan, Panini maker or just about any means to cook both sides of the tortillas. To cook them this way, use smaller tortillas and fold them in half to make individual hand-held pies.
