Dried Apples

Tis the season for apple-y things! We sliced up some apples today and made these "chips."  My recipe called them chips and said to bake them for 2 hours, I baked them for closer to 3 and they still didn't end up crispy like chips, just kinda dry and chewy but still really good! Next time I'd do a larger batch since that is a long time to have the oven going for just one pan-full, plus, I bet they'd freeze well for later.

(chewy) Apple Chips
• 3-4 apples
• 2 tbsp sugar
• 1 tsp cinnamon

Core and thinly slice apples about 1/8-inch thick and arrange in a single layer on baking sheet. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over apple slices. Bake at 200 degrees for 2-3 hours. Remove from oven and cool completely before transferring to a sealed container.

Here they are before baking-


And after-


Kinda sad how much they shrink down!


And here they are posing next to our lovely little fall candle/squash decor-


Looking forward to many more apple goodies in the coming weeks!  Happy almost Fall!
