Looking for a light snack this summer? Look no further!
Want to add something a little fun to your yogurt? How about your oatmeal? Or want to enjoy a yummy snack in the sun? Read below how to make yourself some Apple Chips!
3 Large, Sweet Apples (Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Fuji, Empire, or whatever your favorite apple is!)
¾ Teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Apple Corer (Or a small cookie cutter if you don’t have an apple corer)
1. Before preparing your apples, place your oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 200° F. Line two baking pans with parchment paper.
2.(Be sure to wash your apples thoroughly before using) With an apple corer, very small cookie cutter, or the round side of a metal piping tip, core the apples (you can also skip this step if you don’t mind a few seeds in the chips). With a very sharp knife, slice the apples horizontally into 1/8 inch-thick rounds (very thin slices or however thick you want your chips)
3.Lay your apple slices out on your baking sheets in single layers (do not over lap apple slices). Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste. Bake for 1 hour in the upper and lower thirds of the oven at 200° F. Remove the baking sheets and switch the pans’ position on the upper and lower racks. Continue baking for 1 to 1 1/2 additional hours (to test the apple chips, remove a single apple slice, let it sit for 2-3 minutes but let the others continue baking). Once you are happy with the crispness (the total time will vary based on the thickness of your slice and the type of apple), turn off the oven and let the apples sit in the oven for 1 hour as it cools down to crisp further. (If you think your slices are a little overcooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool on the stove)
