Apple chips – just three ingredients!

I got a recipe from my daughter’s school for apple chips.  They were so simple, I decided to try them.  Oh my goodness were they easy and delicious!  They take a long time to cook because you’re essentially dehydrating the apples.  However, the hands-on time is minimal.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 large apples
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • parchment paper

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees.
  • Line a few cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Wash and dry the apples.  
  • Core the apples.  I use this corer from OXO.
  • Slice the apples horizontally so they are about 1/8″ thick.
  • Spread apples out in a single layer on the cookie sheets.
  • In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the apples with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Bake on the top rack until the apples are dry and crisp, about 2 hours (longer if you sliced your apples too thickly).  Be sure to flip the apples over every hour or so in order to allow the apples to cook evenly.
  • Remove the apples from the oven and let the chips cool before serving.
  • Store in an air tight container.
