I did not use sugar - only cinnamon. Also, now that I am reading this again, I forgot to spray mine with canola oil, oops!! They still turned out delicious! I baked mine for 2 1/2 hours and found that the ones on the bottom of the oven crisped sooner. Oh, and 2 large apples doesn't make many chips in my opinion...but it's a start! My hubby sliced them in the mandoline for me so I did not have to cut my fingers off trying to slice them thin with a knife. How would you even do that?!
Isn't this a beautiful picture? I wish I could say that I took it, but I didn't. I borrowed it from Vittles & Bits, where the recipe came from.
- 2 large apples, cored (I used Red Delicious)
- 2 T. sugar (optional)
- 1 t. cinnamon
- canola oil spray
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Thinly slice apples crosswise about 1/8-inch (2 mm) thick with a mandoline or sharp knife. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets, and spray with canola oil cooking spray.
If using sugar, combine in a small bowl with cinnamon. Put mixture into a sieve and sprinkle evenly over apple slices.
Bake in the top and bottom third of the oven until apples are dry and crisp, about 2 hours (mine took a little longer than that to get crisp, but I didn't use sugar). Remove from oven and let ‘chips’ cool completely before transferring to a sealed container for up to 3 days. Makes about 2 cups of apple chips.
