Tis the season for fresh picked apples! Living in Ohio provides us lots of opportunities to enjoy farm fresh produce. There is a fruit farm down the road from us that grows the most amazing apples. We enjoy going and picking them from the trees. In fact, we are going this weekend! Then we can make more of these...
Baked Apple Chips
These are very addicting. I think I need a second oven so that I can make more of these at a time. As it was, I could only do 4 or so apples (they were large honey crisp apples) at a time and they went FAST!
I don't have a produce mandoline, so I sliced the apples as thin as I could and arranged them on baking sheets, lined with parchment paper. The parchment paper is essential. Spraying them with cooking spray doesn't work (I tried that and the chips stuck!). To core them, I just used a small cookie cutter and pressed it in to the center of each slice. You just need to remove the seeds. Most slices didn't have seeds in them anyways. Then I sprayed them with butter cooking spray and sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them.
I baked them at 225 degrees for 2 hours, then let them sit in the oven over night. I rotated the racks after an hour so that they baked evenly. They were perfect.
