We have an apple tree in our backyard. We didn't plant it, it was just there when we moved in. So we have no idea what variety of apples our backyard tree makes, but come late summer the thing is overflowing with apples. The abundance of apples always inspires me to create many apple recipes such as Apple Crescents. Recently, I made an Apple Chips Recipe that the kids flipped over. It is a great way to use up any extra apples you might have around.
Apple Chips Recipe
We always end up with plenty of apples that have some damage such as bruises or small holes. This apple chips recipe is perfect to make with those kinds of apples, since they will be peeled and sliced so you can get rid of the bad parts.
To prepare the apples for this recipe, I highly recommend a mandoline slicer. It just makes slicing apples a breeze and all your slices will be uniform in size. Just watch those fingers as the slicers are super sharp!
Top with a cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at low heat and flip. Add more cinnamon sugar and return to oven. After all the cooking time is done, they will remain in the oven after it has been turned off. This really helps these chips get crunchy.
This apple chip recipe makes the crispiest, crunchiest apples chips we have ever tried. The cinnamon and sugar really make them feel like a special holiday treat.
These apple chips won't last very long since they are so delicious. If you do have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container for 3-4 days, but they will not retain the crisp and crunch they had when just made.
