Apple Cinnamon Quesadillas

This delicious snack or lunch is based on a recipe I saw on The Rachael Ray Show. I omitted the cheese. The thought of having melted cheese and apples together just does not appeal to me. You can use her original recipe and add vegan cheese instead. I thought it would be a good idea to add some cinnamon to the apples. I was right because after it was cooked, the taste reminded me of apple pie! You don't taste the jam used in this recipe. It's used more like a glue to keep the apples in place in the quesadilla...so don't omit the jam. These are great as a dessert with vegan vanilla ice cream on top.
 
4 large tortillas (gluten free)
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 Tbsp strawberry jam, divided (or other all-fruit spread may be substituted)
1 apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
cinnamon
 
Preheat oven to 250ºF. Wrap tortillas in a damp kitchen towel and cook in the microwave for a minute. Lay the warm, pliable tortillas out on a clean, flat, work surface. Spread one tablespoon of jelly over each tortilla. Put a few sliced apples on one half of the tortillas. Sprinkle cinnamon on top the apple slices. Fold the quesadillas in half to create half moons.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the quesadillas one at a time in the hot pan and heat them on both sides until they are crispy and golden brown about 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer each cooked quesadilla to a baking tray in the oven to keep warm as you finish the others. Cut each quesadilla into quarters.
