My kids love these. This also works with chunky peanut butter and any other sliced fruit you want to use. GREAT hands-on recipe for kids.

Great idea, but did not work out well. I followed the directions but 4-6 minutes for each side was way too long and ended up burning. It was kind of a mess to eat. Oh and do not put honey in the filing - leave it as dipping sauce or something after it's done. The honey thinned as the quesadilla cooked and spread all over the pan.

Excellent! I saw the words "Peanut Butter Fiend" and I knew this recipe was calling my name! I'm an admitted peanut butter addict and will eat just about anything with the ooey, gooey, nutty stuff on it. Peanut Butter and apples are a great combination in my book, but sandwich the two between some tortillas and heat them up a bit to get the peanut butter a little "melty" and have yourself a really nice little treat! I sprinkled a little cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg on my apples, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing!

I "embellshed" the quesadilla a little by shaking some cinnamon on top of the apples and drizzling the finished quesadilla with honey as suggested by one reviewer. Tortillas, apples, and peanut butter are ingredients I would likely always have and this is quick and easy to put together. Thanks for the good idea!

Excellent!!! My boys loved these quesadillas. Instead of cuting the apples I just shredded it. Thanks for the recipe!

Good snack!! Grandkids loved them. Next time I'm going to serve them "ELVIS STYLE" with peanut butter, bacon & bananas. Maybe peanut butter & nutella [chocolate] or with a little marshallow creme. Use your imagination & have fun with this.

I loved these! I buttered the ouside of the tortilla so it'd get crisp and golden. I didn't measure but used about 1/2 the amount of peanut butter and apple.

I made it exactly how it asked, but when I tried it I felt like it needed a little something more. So I threw a dip togeter using a few scoops of frozen cool whip and a spoon of apple butter..a very nice touch! The boys loved it and asked for more!!
