The Pioneer Woman's Caramel-Apple Quesadillas Will Be The Best Thing You Make This Week
When you hear the word "quesadilla," we're guesing "caramel-apple" isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But thanks to the Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond, we're having a hard time getting this genius mash-up out of our minds.
And we can't wait to get it into our skillets. To make Drummond's caramel apple quesadilla, you only need a handful of ingredients — and a lot of sugar. As Drummond captions the video of the tantalizing recipe on Instagram, "Is it dessert? Is it breakfast? Is it an appetizer? Is it a midnight snack? These are the mysteries of life that I love to ponder."
First, she heats up butter, brown sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla extract in a pan to combine with cream cheese and more brown sugar for a filling. The mixture gets slathered onto a tortilla and then apple slices, toasted pecans, and a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar add to the base. Next, butter once again sizzles on the skillet before placing the tortilla and fillings inside the pan, spooning on some caramel, and adding another tortilla to sandwich the quesadilla together. After cooking to a golden brown on both sides, more cinnamon-sugar and caramel gets placed on top before a final dollop of whipped cream and some more slices of apples.
