Serve these after your next Mexican meal for a sweet treat. If you don't want the sugar coating on the outside just sprinkle the mixture on the inside.

The flavor of these quesadillas was very good. I made the apples ahead of time then the recipe went together very quickly. They were a little hard to eat, as they are too messy to eat with you hands, but a little hard to cut - and the filling squirts out. We enjoyed them all the same. Made for My Three Chefs - Fall 09
