Grilled Apple & Brie Quesadilla with Strawberry Apple Dipping Sauce

I made this for a snack this afternoon. The recipe is Sandra Lee Semi Homemade. One quesadilla was plenty for the kids & I to snack on.

**What you need:
1/4 cup cream cheese
8 soft taco size flour tortillas
1/2lb brie, thinly sliced strips
1 apple thinly sliced (I used the majority of an apple for just the 1 I made)

1 (8oz) jar strawberry jam
1/4 cup apple sauce 1 pinch cinnamon

Preheat grill pan over medium heat. SPray pan with non stick spray when ready to start cooking.

Spread cream cheese evenly over 4 of the tortillas. Evenly divide brie strip on top of the cream cheese. Divide apple slices on top of brie. Top with remaining 4 tortillas.

Place each on pan & grill 3 minutes/side. Flip with a spatula. Remove from heat & cool 2 minutes before slicing.

Sauce: Combine ingredients and microwave for 1-2 minutes. (I didn't have apples sauce so I just heated some strawberry jelly for a minute - more than enough time).
