Do not confuse this Salvadorian Quezadilla, a rich, cakey cheese bread, with the Mexican appetizer, quesadilla. This recipe comes from the small village of Rosario de La Paz in El Salvador. Flavored with Parmesan-type cheese, queso seco, and sprinkled with crunchy sesame seeds, it’s a delicious blend of sweet and savory. Enjoy it by itself or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a hot cup of coffee.
