The Perfect Fall Apple Chips
And what says fall better than apples? Here's a quick and easy recipe for apple chips that will give you something fun and different to do with all those autumn delicacies.
Use a mandolin to make evenly sliced apples. You can make them as thin or as thick as you like, but these pictured here were almost too thin. A little thicker would have been perfect.
Then mix your favorite combination of cinnamon and sugar together in a plastic baggie. This makes it super easy to get it all stirred up and yummy. I used the cinnamon we got in Des Moines at a great spice shop called allspice. They're fresh and wonderful and tasty, making this mix all the more perfect.
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees. Then lay out your apple slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle them with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake them for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the thickness of your apple. Start with the shorter time and check them frequently.
Once they come out of the oven, just put them on a cooling rack for a minute and they'll be ready to eat! Try some caramel dipping sauce with them if they seem a little too healthy for your personal taste.
