Slice up two apples (you can use a mandolin, or a knife will do) seeds and all! I used two apples, one Gala and one Red Delicious as that is what we had on hand. The Gala was far better than the Red Delicious, so use a sweeter apple.
Sprinkle cinnamon over the slices – I did front and back – but front will be plenty (not too much or they will come out bitter).
Halfway through baking, turn them over (they should look like these, just a little curled). And, your house will smell delicious!
1-2 hours later you are ready to snack on these crunchy healthy treats. Yum!
Note – depending on how thinly these are sliced they will take less time. Thicker slices may require 2 hours where thinner slices will be ready in one hour!
If you’re trying to determine a decent price on apples to make any apple recipes (like Apple Cake, Apple Dumplings, Skillet Apple Pie, Snickers Apple Salad, whatever), aim to pay less between 60¢-80¢/lb. during the fall season, around 99¢ per pound during the rest of the year. And if you’re lucky enough to live near an apple orchard (or have a friend who has an apple tree), this is a great time to stock up!
