Between all of the apple pies, crisps, and other delicious treats we make once apple season is upon us I like to make something simple that is tasty, a little less filling, and quicker to make!
These apple chips pack a nice punch of fall flavors. They are spicy enough, but yet not too overwhelming for the kiddos The chips will be a little soft, even soggy, when they come out of the oven, but once the sugar cools they will harden right up.
Have a great fall beverage you enjoy but want to add some more appeal? Slice an apple chip before baking and it will make a cute little garnish!
Spiced Apple Chips
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 granny smith apples
Pre-heat oven to 200 F.
On a large bowl, combine the sugar and all of the spices.
Slice apples horizontally very thinly (1/8″ thick) with a mandoline or sharp knife. Remove and discard seeds.
Toss the apples gently in the spice mix and coat well. Arrange in single layers on a rimmed baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
Bake for about 2 hours, turning the apple chips every 30 minutes. Cool on wire racks and then store in an airtight container for 1 week.
Yields about 30 chips.
