When we went to Michigan a few weeks ago, we walked in to my cutie patootie friend Emily’s house and it smelled unnnnnnnreal. I mean, so, so good! Turns out she was baking these delicious apple chips (our friend Lisa’s recipe). She sent us home with a pretty big bag, and well, they never made it to the plane. They are THAT good, & since they make your house smell so yummy, it’s a double whammy. (Did you know most scented candles are actually highly toxic? Such a bummer.)
Sooooo….I used a 30% off coupon and got this fancy smancie mandolin slicer from Kohl’s. Jonathan tested it out for us. I am a little terrified one of us are going to end up in the ER with that thing, so we are going to make sure we take our time and are really cautious with it.
Here’s the recipe.
- a few organic apples (this is one food you should ALWAYS try to buy organic)
- 1 c sugar (I used 1/2 c Splenda instead)
- 2 tbls cinnamon
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Thinly slice the apples (I used the mandolin slicer at 1/8). Place on parchment paper in a single layer. (FYI: You HAVE to use parchment paper. Don’t try anything else. I may or may not be speaking from experience here, but it won’t work.) Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mix. Bake for 1 hour. Flip slices over and cook for 1 more hour. They will harden as they cool, so don’t keep baking because they don’t look like chips yet. (I may or may not be speaking from experience again.)
