Peach and Brie Quesadilla with drizzling sauce

Peach and Brie Quesadilla with sauce to drizzle or dip

For the sauce:
3 TBS of fresh lime juice (always use fresh)
6 TBS (1/4 cup plus 2 TBS) honey
1 1/2 tsp. of zested lime rind

For the quesadilla:

1 cup peeled slightly firm ripe peaches
1 TBS fresh chives, minced
1 tsp. brown sugar
3 oz. thinly sliced Brie cheese (place in freezer for a couple minutes)
4 tortillas - you can use whole wheat or fat free

Whisk all sauce ingredients together to combine well.

Heat grill. Coat with cooking spray when ready to put quesadillas on. If you are not grilling then heat a preferably non-stick skillet over medium-high heat (make sure and don't have too low - you don't want everything to totally melt and be soggy) and coat with cooking spray.

Combine chives and sugar first then gently toss with peaches. Distribute ingredients between the four tortillas then fold in half. It's nice to keep the cheese a little bit away from the edges - what a waste to lose cheese in the grill If your skillet holds two then cook two at a time. Cook approximately 2 minutes on each side or until the outside is a nice golden color. If grilling you want some grill marks.

This can serve various numbers of people depending on whether everyone wants their own half, or half of a half, etc., etc.

Serve each person some drizzling/dipping sauce or just drizzle across the tops.

Kids liked it too? I am always on the lookout for kid friendly recipes.

My kids love the brie stuffed chicken breasts so I think I could squeak this past them. LOL.

Alix, Cade the older of the two who eat solid food is really hard to get to try anything..But he has finally learned to take one bite and if he doesn't like it he doesnt have to eat it, but must choose something he does like to take it's place, Well he took a bite and ate a half all by himself!!! The one year old is a fruit nut and ate a whole one!!! Yup the kids liked it :)
kadesma...I might try this with other fruits since it did get the kids going

Kitchen elf and I had these the other night. They are a great mix of sweet and savory. They are the perfect summer snack, The honey and lime sauce is light a refreshing.

I might add a little more brown sugar, and a little fresh ground cinnamon.
Also using some butter in the pan would add a nice flavor, although I would use it sparingly.
One for the books that is for sure.
