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