How to Make Apple Pie Quesadillas on the Stove

Step 1: In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cinnamon.

Step 2: Next, pour the apple pie filling onto a cutting board and use a large knife to coarsely chop up the apples. Set aside. 

Step 3: In a pan over medium heat, melt ½ tablespoon of butter.

Step 4: Once melted, add a tortilla to the pan for about a minute to allow it to crisp up. Take it out of the pan and set it aside. This tortilla will go on top of the quesadilla.

Step 5: Melt another ½ tablespoon of butter in the pan. Add the second tortilla, then drizzle on 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce. Spread 1 cup of the apple pie filling over the caramel, then drizzle on an additional tablespoon of caramel topping.

Step 6: Then, place the crispy tortilla on top and let the quesadilla heat through. Flip if needed.

Step 7: Finally, dust the top of the apple pie quesadilla with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Step 8: Move it to a cooling rack and repeat the process for the rest of the quesadillas.

Step 9: Allow them to cool slightly before cutting them into quarters, then serve with caramel dipping sauce or vanilla ice cream.

Helpful Tips & Substitutions

Can I use my own apple pie filling recipe?

I like to use canned apple filling for ease, but you can certainly use your own pie filling recipe. Be sure to cook the filling before adding it to the quesadilla. 

What do I serve apple pie quesadillas with?

You can serve these on their own or top them with ice cream, whipped cream, or caramel sauce!

How do I flip a quesadilla?

Use a large spatula to support the quesadilla when flipping. I lift my quesadilla out of the pan, then place the pan on top, so I’m flipping the pan and not the quesadilla itself.
