Oh my word. I can’t even tell you how fabulous my house was smelling last night while these were crisping away in the oven. It was apple, cinnamon, and sugar yumminess all over. On my Friday’s Finds last week, I had linked to these Apple Crisps. I couldn’t wait to try some, so I made a few changes-I added sugar to the cinnamon, and changed the technique a bit. The result was crispy apple chips, still slightly chewy inside. As my husband said-while we were standing at the island shoving them in our mouths like children with Halloween candy-“This is fall. Apples, cinnamon, and sugar.”
Pam or other cooking spray
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t sugar
*Heat oven to 200 degrees.
*Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with Pam, or with parchment paper.
*Core the apples. To do this, my husband stood the apple upright and sliced around the core to sort of “dig” it out.
*Lay the apple on its side, and slice it with a very sharp knife or a mandolin. Slice it to about 1/8 inch.
*Place the apple slices, in a single layer, on the baking sheet.
*Lightly spray the slices with Pam.
*Mix the cinnamon and sugar together, and lightly sprinkle the apple slices.
*Bake at 200 degrees for two hours.
*When there is about 20 minutes left, gently flip the slices over.
*For the remaining 20 minutes, turn the oven up to 250 and use the convect or fan function on your oven. This will help dry the apples out a little more.
*Allow the apples to cool on the pan. Store in an airtight container for about 3 days.
*Yield: About 24 chips (depends how big the apples are)
