The Lazy Lady’s guide to a 15 minute dessert

Ever want to make a dessert on the weeknight, but don’t have much time?  Or energy?  Or motivation?  Who has two thumbs and likes dessert, but is also running on fumes at the end?  This girl.

This dessert is a snap to put together, and makes everyone happy.

Cinnamon-Sugar dessert quesadillas
2 flour tortillas
1 tsp sugar (I use organic evaporated cane juice from Costco)
1 tsp brown sugar (try making your own)
2 tsp butter
A crap ton of cinnamon

1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2) Put foil over a baking sheet.  We use reuse foil all the time, so we always have a plethora of it hanging around.  Or, don’t cover the baking sheet and hate yourself later when you’re cleaning it.  Up to you.  Place your torts on the foil.

3) Spread the butter over one side of the torts.  Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the sugar over each of the torts.

4) Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the brown sugar over each of the torts.

5) Douche (not a typo.  I did not mean douse) the top with cinnamon.

6) Bake for 15 minutes, cool for a few minutes, and then cut in to pizza wedges.  Serve with applesauce if you’d like.

  1. I am going to try this one for sure. It looks yummy and so easy. And love the pics Jack took lol

  2. Growing up my mother’s quick deserts were canned figs with a dollop of sour cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream with coconut shreds and a drizzle of lime juice. She was not a baker, I did that.

  3. Are those homemade tortillas?! They puff up so nicely! I’m super picky about my tortillas!

    • They’re not, they’re better than the homemade tortillas that I’ve made in the past. They’re from a regional grocery store called Central Market, and they make them right there while you watch. You get 15 for $3.79!

  4. That looks yummy and easy! I wouldn’t think you have any problem with desserts with all the damn fruit you’ve stolen! Yes, I’m keeping track!

    BTW, made fabulous Kale chips this afternoon. I have a real problem not eating them right out of the oven!!!

  5. 3 days in a Spiderman costume???? THAT BOY ROCKS!!!!

  6. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

  7. You mean douche? http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=word%20douche
    I think she does mean douse, or, in MIA, it means something else
