apple chips

September 29th, 2008

Last week was apple sauce, this week is apple chips. Mmmm they are so good and so simple. You do need time though, but if its rainy out like it was here in brooklyn, they’re a perfect recipe to try out. You simply slice some apples, lay them on a thin bed of powdered sugar, top them off with more powdered sugar and let them bake to a crisp in the oven for a few hours. See, that was so easy!

The result is beautifully crisp slivers of apple with a tinge of sweetness. I used Gala apples and the flavor burst in your mouth with each bite. And let me tell you, there will be lots of bites, because these little puppies are addictive. Luckily apples are good for you, so eat up and enjoy!

apple chips

4 gala apples, or a sweet, crisp apple of your choice
6-8 Tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 250°

1
Thinly slice apples as thin as you can get them.
2
Sprinkle a thin layer of powdered sugar over 2 baking sheets.
3
Arrange slices in one layer over sugar, then sprinkle another thin layer of powdered sugar over top.
4
Place the baking sheets in the over and bake for an hour. Switch positions of the baking sheets and place back in the oven for another hour. When the time is up, check on them to see if they’re crisp, if not place them back in until they’re slightly golden and crisp.
5
Once you remove them from the oven, remove from baking sheet and place on cooling racks. Once completely cooled, place in air-tight container. This is key, if you leave them out they’ll get soft and it’s no fun.

    Sounds so good and toasty. I can’t wait to make some. My mom asked me what to do with extra apple the other day. With my usual response I said Tarte Tatin, but apple chips make the perfect snack.

    Try adding some cinnamon to the sugar on the apples. It not only smells good but gives them a great new flavor.

    Not all teenagers are that rich enough to spend money on apparels in order
    to catch up with these trends. Besides, you can also avoid the rush of people in choosing the best of trinkets
    at local shops and unusual price bargains- one can easily get the attractively unique fashion jewels at home at amazingly reasonable prices compared to the conventional shops.
    You need not spend too much just to get the latest trendy
    clothes for the season.
