These homemade apple chips are my new favorite snack. These are better than any others I have tried because they're crispy and full of apple flavor with a hint of cinnamon. Look no farther for a tasty snack food that is healthy too. I think kids would like these in their lunch boxes for a change of pace from the usual fare.
3 medium apples
1 tablespoon fruit fresh dissolved in 2 cups water
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Prepare 2 baking sheets by lining with parchment paper. Wash and core the apples. Slice the apples about 1/8-inch thick in rounds. Dip the apple slices in the fruit fresh, then lay the slices on paper towels. After all the apples have been dipped and drained, lay them on the prepared parchment paper lined pans in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar. Bake in preheated oven for 3 hours, rotating the pans a couple of times during baking. Store cooled apple chips in an airtight container at room temperature.
I used an apple corer and a knife to prepare my apples. I think a mandoline would probably work well to slice the apples if you have one. I used Honeycrisp apples because that's the kind I had, but I think other types of apples would be delicious too.
