Recipe by Derf
I have been making, quite often, Mirjam Dorn's Fruit-Filled Dessert Quesadillas; they are so good! When I came across this recipe in Cooking Light (1994), couldn't resist posting and trying it. This is really for Mirjam--I would never have thought to try something like this, had I not tried Mirjam's Dessert Quesadillas. Thanks Mirjam! These are almost as good as your quesadillas.
