What’s more “fall” than cooking with apples? This week Big B and I made Baked Apple Chips for our weekly cooking activity. He was able to do most of the recipe of himself. I only had to cut the apples.
Preheat your oven to 225 degrees and line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Cut your apples as thin as possible. I had do it with a knife and had a very hard time getting them really thin. Thin or thick, it still comes out tasty, so don’t worry if you can’t seem to get them very thin. We used 4 apples and it seemed like more than enough. I laid the cut apples on a cutting board and gave Big B a blunt round object to remove the core of the apples pieces. I didn’t have a small enough cookie cutter, so I removed the bulb on the baster and let him used the large end to cut out the core… you got to get creative sometimes.
In a bowl mix 1 part cinnamon to 4 parts sugar. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mix “evenly” over the apples, then lay the apples on the cookie sheet.
Cook the Apple slices for one hour. If your slices are on the thicker side, like mine, you might need to cook them longer. I added an extra ten minutes to mine.
Finally comes the clean up! Very important!
When you are done you have a nice, healthy snack that is great on it’s own, or wonderful when added to the top of ice cream, pancakes, or french toast.
