Pear and Brie Quesadillas

4 flour tortillas , 10-inches (25cm) in diameter
2 medium Bartlett pears , at the peak of ripeness
4 ounces (115g) Brie cheese*
1/4 cup (60g) or more fresh salsa , red or green salsa can be used

Place the 4 tortillas on a flat working surface. Slice and core the pears into thin pieces (about 1/4-inch (0.5cm) thick). Slice Brie into 12 or more very thin slices.

To assemble quesadillas, place pear slices and cheese on each tortilla, leaving one side of the tortilla empty for folding over. Fold the tortilla to form a semi-circle, with the pear and cheese on the inside. Heat a nonstick skillet. Place a folded tortilla in the pan and heat just until the cheese starts to melt. Gently turn the quesadilla over and continue heating until the tortilla is lightly browned.

Remove to a platter and repeat with each of the 4 tortillas. Slice each quesadilla in half and drizzle about 1 Tbsp. (15g) of salsa over the top. Serve with napkins or a plate and fork, as it can get quite messy!
