    YUM, YUM, YUM! THese were so flavorful and so easy! I probably used a bit more brie than stated, (one wedge of ile'd France). Also used a few more chives and assembled them on whole wheat tortillas. Instead of a skillet, I used a non-stick grill pan for a nice presentation. Served with the sauce and topped with chives and lime zest. Excellent!

    I made these for a week night supper and served them with watermelon slices. We liked both the quesadillas and the sauce. Easy and good, though a little hard to eat.

    I made these for a birthday party and I couldn't even count how many rave reviews I got for these. They were definitely THE hit of the party, and I didn't even serve them with the dipping sauce because I forgot! Will DEFINITELY keep these on my party list!

    This is an easy recipe with excellent results. We've made it several times and everyone loves it. We grilled it last time and sliced it up and served it on a cutting board with sauce and sliced chives...fun and great for summer entertaining!

    This was really great. I love the taste of brie with the ripe peaches. I made this for a late afternoon appetizer when we had a late dinner planned. Served with a nice pinot grigio. This will be a summer redo recipe.

    This is pretty good and easy to prepare – next time I make this I will place a bit more brie in the tortilla, as I didn’t really taste it and I didn’t serve it with the sauce, so it may have been better if I had done so, nonetheless, both my husband and I enjoyed it!

    These are absolutely phenomenal. I can't understand why anyone would put these flavors together, but they electrify the tastebuds. They brown VERY quickly, so be careful! The sauce is the perfect addition. BIG hit!

    WOW. This was so delicious. I added some shredded fresh-roasted turkey breast for extra protein. I'll definitely be making this again.

    Absolutely delicious and casually elegant. I used light Brie cheese and it was excellent.

    I stumbled on this recipe looking for a peach crisp recipe. My tree is laden with peaches right now, so I thought I'd give this a try. The rest of the reviewers were correct. This is DELISH!!!! I plan to serve it as an appetizer for an upcoming bridal shower. Amazing! It seems much more chic, than the easy amount of effort it took to make....

    The peach and brie went surprisingly well together. I didn't care for the honey-lime sauce and won't make it next time. My only real complaint was how MESSY this dish was to eat! I think this was in large part due to the peach I used. Next time I will be sure to use a very,very firm, under-ripened peach to avoid this messy disaster! I might even try grilling the peach slices first to dry them out a little more... Overall this recipe has great flavor, but it was a little too sloppy for my liking and I wasn't impressed by the sauce.

    I love this dish. It's perfect for the summer. Everyone has raved about it. I make it as a main meal with a side of rice.

    A keeper. I've made this so many times I can't remember. Don't change a thing, always gets rave reviews from guests.

    Made with goat cheese instead of brie and used wheat tortillas. SO GOOD!!!

    I made this with mangoes instead of peaches and it was the hit of the party. Everyone really loved the sauce and were surprised it was so simple. A great party app, so simple yet elegant. The key is not to overload the tortilla. If you're cutting them into 3 pieces, then place 3 pieces of cheese and 3 of fruit in a fan shape on the tortilla half. I cut them with a pizza cutter which worked great.

    My family and I are normally open to trying new and interesting recipes. Based on the reviews and knowing that my oldest son and I love brie, I thought this would be outstanding. To our disappointment, it didn't deliver the way we had hoped. Like one of the other readers, I thought they were a little sloppy to eat....perhaps I used too many peaches. My son doesn't care for lime so he didn't like the sauce. I, on the other hand, thought the sauce helped the flavor. There are many good recipes out there so unfortunately I don't think I would be making this again.

  • Carol76 Posted: 07/03/11

    I gave it four stars because I loved the quesadillas but disliked the sauce a lot. I didn't put sugar in the quesadilla because peaches have enough sweetness. I heated up the tortilla in the pan for a little and then I added everything. Tortilla didn't get soggy at all. It was unreal. I cannot wait to make them again.

  • famfindershaw Posted: 08/17/11

    Wonderful flavor. We added grilled pork slices to add substance and turn them into a main dish. With side dishes of baked okra and squash patties, one was plenty. I loved how the sauce brought out the special flavor of the peaches and cheese. I would definitely serve again and even use (wo pork) as a party appetizer.

    These were Sooooooo good!!! Although I strongly disagree with this being posted as a "dinner tonight"! The portion was extremely small for dinner. However, I would make this again for an appetizer! I used whole wheat tortillas and goat cheese Brie.

  • CStock25 Posted: 08/05/11

    Delish!!! I made these for lunch for my son and I and we both loved them! My daughter wouldn't try them. She loves Brie but not peaches so I made her one with a Pink Lady apple sliced up and she loved it. They were not messy at all. I followed the recipe exactly and used peaches that were ripe but firm. I drizzled the honey lime sauce over the quesadillas. Perfect!! Will absolutley be making these again..soon!

  • katrinaemel Posted: 10/10/11

    I did not make the sauce but the quesadillas were delicious. I loved the combination of fruit and cheese melted together. Made these for a dinner party and were a great appetizer/dessert. Very simple to make, I popped them in the toaster oven as needed to keep them warm.

  • Keiko123 Posted: 10/30/11

    excellent..were a little messy but were a hit even with the picky teenager. I served it as an appetizer prior to the Chipolte mealoaf (also from this web site)..perfect combo!

  • Clobberella422 Posted: 11/07/11

    These were good, but I don't really see the need to use brie here (unless one used a LOT more than indicated in the recipe) as the flavor of the cheese seemed to get buried under the taste of the peaches. I will probably make these again with a different cheese; I think they would be just as good with another, less expensive white cheese like queso blanco or even Monterrey Jack.

  • KathyinManvel Posted: 06/23/12

    Loved the tastes in this appetizer. Wonderful for summer.The honey-lime dipping sauce was a great compliment, I would definitely NOT leave it out. I made the recipe just as written. I tried to serve a couple quesadillas by cooking two tortillas sandwiched together, but the brie made the tortillas slide a bit. The quesadillas were much neater when folded. Will definitely make again.

  • ktleyed Posted: 07/04/12

    These were delicious, but messy to eat, the sauce makes it, don't leave it out.

    Absolutely delicious! Wouldnt suggest it as a meal, maybe more of an appetizer, but regardless, it was amazing!

    Wowzer. These were dee-lish. I substituted perfectly ripe white nectarines for the peaches and didn't bother to peel them. Next time, I'm going to grill these with indirect heat on THE BBQ.

    Love this appetizer! Big fan of CL's arugula, apple, and brie quesadillas in the fall, so was excited for a summer variation. Used nectarines because we had them on hand. The honey-lime sauce is what really makes the dish.

  • taval2 Posted: 08/22/12

    This was definitely yummy -- my only complaint is that it was a little difficult for guests to eat. I will make it again but just for my husband and me, so we can use our fingers and be messy :-)

  • niccc80 Posted: 08/12/12

    I made these for girls night as an appetizer. They were super easy and were a welcome lighter version to most quesadilla fillings. I did bake each half on a lightly greased baking sheet in the oven as I hate fussing with things when people are over. I took it a little too far and tried light brie inside (it was on sale). The sauce is awesome. I would not recommend sacrificing the flavor and texture of regular brie. Great recipe would make again.

  • MrsMonicaGrace Posted: 01/02/14

    I gave it 3 stars because I couldn't find peaches or nectarines ANYWHERE in all of Las Vegas! Lol. I used Pears. My 8 year old ate it, the husband ate it, and my picky 5 year old just wasn't having it. It taste like I was having a snack in France....a nice switch up from regular quesadillas. Hopefully I can try this with peaches in the summer. The honey lime sauce was yummy.

  • VirginiaHanke Posted: 07/10/13

    I just made these for lunch. Other than wanting to add more brie next time, they were awesome

  • SBHereICome Posted: 07/06/13

    Awesome! I also added a preserve inside the tortilla. This could be used as a substitute for the honey topping.

    Unique, fresh flavors! I made the recipe first,as an appetizer and assumed it would be a pick-up food~ disappointed with the messiness. BUT this recipe is so flavorful that it's worthy of a knife & fork. I do like it better with whole wheat tortillas, and definitely use the dipping sauce. Love to serve this recipe as a light summer meal paired with rice, (add a little lime zest to the rice as well) and with peach tea over crushed ice. YUM!

  • nursekathy Posted: 07/15/13

    Made this yesterday afternoon. Used fresh peaches which can be a chore as I had to blanch them so I could peel them first. Also, as no one likes the rind on the brie I removed that though there is no specific direction to do so. I was using a supermarket Brie; perhaps if I had been able to get a better Brie I would have left it on. It is quite easy to make, and while the pairing of ingredients is somewhat unconventional, they do seem to work together. Adult daughter liked them better without the sauce-she thought it was too sweet. I did used more Brie than indicated as we like cheese and everyone agreed they liked the ones with more cheese better. They are messy to eat (the peaches tend to fall out when you take a bite) so would not be good at a dinner where people are dressed up.
