This recipe was my little Sophie's idea. We had fun making these and our family really enjoyed them.
Be sure to slice your chips thin and uniformly. Some of our chips were more like apple sauce, some were over baked and some were like dried apples- and some were perfect! Part of the fun of cooking with kids!
Oven Baked Apple Chips:
Slice apples thinly. We used green, yellow and red apples and they were all equally delicious. Grease a clean sheet pan with flavorless oil such as vegetable. Toss your apple slices in a little oil as well to coat both sides. Lay them out in a single layer and sprinkle with a bit of white sugar. Bake at 325F for about 20 to 30 minutes until the bottoms are beginning to brown. Flip once and bake another 15 to 30 minutes or until the chips are a nice chestnut brown. Remove from the pan with a thin spatula and cool on wire racks. Some may seem soft but as they cool they will firm up a bit.
Your baking time will totally depend on how thin you slice your apples. The really thin slices crisp up beautifully and don't take long to bake at all. My sheet pan was a little rough and I didn't grease it (I only tossed my slices in oil) so I had troubles with the well-done chips sticking. We also didn't slice the apples uniformly so the chips that were over-done stuck worse. I wonder if sprinkling the sugar over them made them stick a little so next time I plan to sprinkle the sugar just when the apples come out of the oven. I'll also experiment with a little cinnamon in my sugar. My kids weren't into it but I bet it's yummy!
