With school in full swing, Fall feels closer than ever. When I think of Fall, I like to think about the crispness of the air and the crackling of the leaves under comfy boots. Sadly, it’s still very hot and humid on the East Coast yet I can’t stop looking at all the recipes that include apples and pumpkins…Anybody else waiting for pumpkin pies and apple tarts? In Fall, apples are a big staple in our home. One of my favorite things to make with them are apple chips. The process of making apple chips is very long because you have to dry them in the oven for them to become crispy.
Crispy Apple Chips
- 4 apples
- 1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
Preheat the oven 220F.Wash the apples. If you choose to, remove the skin. Core the apples. Using a mandolin, thinly slice the apples, 1/8 in or smaller. Place all the slices in a large baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar. Using a sieve, evenly sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top of the apples.
Place the apple in the oven for 1 hour. Flip the slices once to evenly dry them for another hour (1hr), until crispy.
Remove them from the oven once they are crispy yet not burnt. They can be stored in an airtight container for about a week.
