Summer is here, friends, and I’m so excited to bring the cooking (and the eating!) back outside.

We regularly grill our dinners around here, and I think it’s time we bring our dessert to the grill as well!

Grilled fruit is a great place to start but today we’re taking things up a notch by adding Tre Stelle Mascarpone to some fresh, local strawberries and grilling them up inside a flour tortilla for the ultimate dessert quesadilla.

This right here is one of the best summer desserts there is.

No heating up the house, no mixers going and mixing bowls and measuring cups spread across the counter. Just a few simple ingredients and a grill, and you’ve got it made.

Around here, strawberry season is short and although we pick as many as we can get our hands on, it has to end eventually. These strawberry cheesecake quesadillas would be great with just about any fruit, so feel free to use what you have on hand!

Blueberries, raspberries, thinly sliced apples, peaches, nectarines – or a combo! Feel free to get a little crazy here and do your own thing. You all know I’m not one for following the rules 😉

How to make Strawberry Cheesecake Quesadillas:

  • Choose your ingredients wisely: start with fresh in season fruit (when possible!) and Tre Stelle Mascarpone to make these the best they can be!
  • If you want to get adventurous, you can add some extra flavour to your mascarpone cheese: grated lemon zest, a teaspoon of cocoa powder, or some smooth peanut butter for a PB&J style quesadilla — or keep it simple!
  • Don’t have a grill or it’s frigid outside? Cook them for a minute or two over high heat in a non-stick frying pan. (Or try them cold — they’re delicious that way as well!)

Tips for prepping these Strawberry Cheesecake Quesadillas ahead:

These Strawberry Cheesecake Quesadillas are great for preparing ahead of time if you’ve got company coming. You can prepare the Mascarpone, slice the strawberries, and even assemble the quesadillas (hold off on the grilling!) up to 3-4 hours in advance! (Any longer and your sliced strawberries start getting a little dry).

Just be sure to wrap in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container until you’re ready to grill.
