Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Whisk sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Add apple slices and toss to coat. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake apples in the preheated oven until browned and just crisped, about 2 hours. Cool completely.

Cook's Note:

Use a mandoline or sharp knife to slice the apples.

Place apple slices on wire racks and decrease baking time by approximately 10 to 15 minutes. You are drying the apples, not baking them. Let cool; they will get crispier while cooling.

Delicious. Used the convection setting on our oven, and decreased the cook time by about 15-20 minutes. They will crisp up more when they are out....we are hooked!!!!! Read More

Mine got stuck to the wax paper & wouldn't come off. Those that stayed softer were soggy. Read More

I used a mandolin and sliced these as thinly as possible. They needed cooking only 45 minutes. So glad I checked them. I was going to turn them over, but before I could finish the tray, I realized they were crispy. So I took them out. The grands made these and rated them for me. It was a fun kid project. Next time, I would decrease the cinnamon mainly for appearance sake. Read More

The apples turned out delicious! However I followed the cooks notes and put the apples on wire racks and reduced the cooking time. Unfortunately the apples are completely cemented on the wire racks. If you follow this method it is apparently necessary to spray the wire racks. I will try this recipe again but will just use the parchment paper with the longer cook time. Read More

A good way to finish up those last apples on the counter. Quick to prepare. Forgot about them until I could smell the wonderful smell of cinnamon which I accidentally used too much of. Read More

I've already made them twice for my son and he is in love. I'm going to make it a third time but I will be using brown sugar instead of white. This is a great way to use apples. Read More

What a great snack! These are easy to make although I would suggest using an apple corer to eliminate the core before slicing and baking. The kids don't even know they are good for them! Meryl M Read More
