HOW TO: Make the Easiest, Tastiest Home-Baked Apple Chips Ever

First, decide how many apples you need. One apple yields about 2-3 kid-sized snack servings. Generally you will need one to one and a half sliced apples per cookie sheet. I would recommend making a batch of at least 2 cookie sheet’s worth. Wash your apples, especially if you are not peeling them. Peeling is optional. Organic apples are also recommended. Luckily, many local options can still be found at farmer’s markets throughout the country even at this time of year.

Slice the apples thinly. We used an old-school apple peeler/corer/slicer, but it is definitely not required. However, do try to keep the slices a uniform size so that they all cook at the same speed and have the same final texture.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Lay apple slices in one layer on the cookie sheet. It’s okay if they touch a little bit, but do not overlap them. Sprinkle with cinnamon or another spice of your choice. I used 1/2 tsp cinnamon for 1 apple. I also added several dashes of nutmeg. Allspice is also a good option.

Bake at 200 degrees for one hour, then gently and carefully flip the apple pieces. Sprinkle another 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or other spices on them (optional, but adds great flavor). Continue cooking, checking them every 15-20 minutes until desired texture.
