Celebrate Fall! Cinnamon Spiced Apple Chips

4 Oct

It’s officially Fall! Though the Texas weather may still feel like summer, I can still do everything inside to make myself believe it’s really Fall. This includes buying up all the Glade Fall Expressions scented items for the apartment and starting to dig up those apple and pumpkin recipes. This is a Pinterest find and one that has been adapted on several different sites but we thought we needed to try this one out for ourselves!  If only for the scent that wafts around the house while they’re baking. Jaclyn and I tried this several different ways before finding the “just right” spice mixture for us. The real key here to make the apple slices as thin as possible (without cutting off your finger… nobody likes bloody apple chips). The thinner they are, the crispier they will be.  It’s tough to use the oven to get them to that processed perfection (without a dehydrator… hello 5th grade science fair project!) so if anybody tries this and has any tips for making them extra crispy, share away in the comments!

Cinnamon Spiced Apple Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ tablespoon of sugar (or splenda/stevia)
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon cardamom (do not go out and buy this is you don’t already have it because it’s really expensive and you will rarely use it if you’re not a big baker!)
  • 2 apples of your choice (I used Red Delicious & Gala)

Process

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the spices together.
  3. Place the apple on its side and slice as thin as possible. You can simply remove just the seeds after this or cut out the entire middle of the apples so that they look more like bagel chips (yum…)
  4. Place the apple slices in the large bowl and toss them with the spices.
  5. Once the apple slices are coated, place them on the baking sheets – careful not to overlap.
  6. Bake in the oven for 1 hour, flip them over, and bake for another 45 minutes.
  7. Let apple chips cool – they will get crispier!
  8. Enjoy!

    […] Oh, how fall inspires some wonderfully creative treats to eat. Just look how good these look. Me and Chris got up early Sunday Morning to make up some goodies to take to Sunday Dinner at his parent’s house. I was very excited to make these after learning the recipe from one of the blogs I frequent. For more specific measurements you can find the recipe on Lauerland’s blog  here. […]
