    apricot dessert quesadillas

    Recipe By : WW Archives
    Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories :

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/2 cup light cream cheese -- whipped
    1 Tbsp sugar
    1/2 tsp lemon zest
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice
    4 medium fat-free flour tortilla(s)
    4 medium apricot(s) -- sliced into thin wedges
    1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving) -- butter-flavored
    1 Tbsp powdered sugar
    1 serving butter-flavor cooking spray

    Stir cream cheese, granulated sugar, zest and lemon juice together in a medium bowl. Spread 1/4 of mixture on one half of each tortilla, layer each with 1/4 of apricot slices and fold each tortilla in half.

    Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Arrange 2 folded tortillas in skillet; cook over medium heat until golden brown, flipping once, about 4 to 5 minutes on the first side and 1 to 2 minutes on the other side. Remove from skillet, cover to keep warm and repeat with remaining 2 tortillas.

    Cut each tortilla in half to form quarter wedges, place on a serving platter, dust with powdered sugar (use a sieve) and serve. Yields 2 wedges per serving.

    Flavor Booster: The hot-sweet bite of ginger adds an exciting taste dimension to the quesadillas. Halve the sugar in the cream cheese spread and mix in 1 tbsp finely minced candied ginger.

    Description:
    "We give a whole new meaning to quesadillas with our sweet cream-and-fresh-fruit variety. They're perfect for brunch or after dinner."

    NOTES : 3 points per serving. These are WW totals, I can’t get my nutritional facts to match because I don’t have all the ingredients. I will make them and let you all know if there is a change in the facts but it looks to be about right to me.

    would it lower points if you use splenda?

    I usually find that you can save about a point, depending on the recipe and if it calls for at least 1/2 cup of sugar.

    In the recipe above though, it is only three points anyway so I think I would go with the real stuff.
