Camembert with Peaches – all wrapped in a Flour Tortilla – YUM when Cooking with kids!
I love quesadillas! And we make our own Camembert cheeses. So this combination adapted from myrecipes.com is truly a Little Farm Special. Cooking with Kids is our preference so you will see how to make this a kid friendly recipe . We play Love Song For my Child while we cook.
Sauce: The kids can make this – it teaches them measuring, and how to control stirring.
- 2 tablespoons honey ( we use honey from our own bees)
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
- 1 cup thinly sliced peeled firm ripe peaches (about 2 large)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 3 ounces camembert cheese, thinly sliced
- 4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
- Cooking spray
- Chive strips (optional)
- To prepare sauce, help the children to combine the first 3 ingredients, stirring with a whisk; set aside. Each of our grandkids has their own whisk – and guard it carefully!
- To prepare quesadillas, combine peaches, 1 tablespoon chives, and sugar, tossing gently to coat.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange one-fourth of cheese and one-fourth of peach mixture over half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.
- Coat pan with cooking spray.
- Place 2 quesadillas in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp.
- Remove from pan; keep warm.
- Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas.
- Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges; serve with sauce. Garnish with chive strips, if desired.
Note: Placing the fillings on one side of the tortilla and folding the other half over (like a taco) makes the quesadillas easier to handle. Whole wheat tortillas would also be great, offering a sweet, nutty taste. The lime-honey dipping sauce balances the richness of the buttery filling.
