I know I started these “Tried it Thursday” posts back this summer and have struggled to keep up with it, but I’m going to try to improve at that! As you can see, the blog has undergone a little transformation! Until I get A LOT of “Tried it Thursday” posts accomplished, I will just be posting them in their respective area. Eventually It’ll get its own spot in the header above.
So I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest (who would have guessed). It is honestly the simplest recipe ever. Even if you’re not too great at cooking, you should give this a shot!
You may have seen a picture of the delicious finish product a few posts ago when I talked about fall break, so I’ll include that again at the bottom as some extra encouragement to give this recipe a try.
Step 1: Slice the apples – THIN!
Be very careful doing this – apples have a not so pleasant shape when it comes to slicing. Each slice needs to be super thin if you want your chips to be crispy + crunchy. They don’t taste bad if they’re on the thicker side, but they’re much better the thinner you can make them. The website (which I’ll link later) that I found this on suggested using a mandolin slicer. Unfortunately I do not have one, but I’d imagine that would do wonders for step 1.
Step 2: Coat apple slices in cinnamon sugar goodness.
Mix up some cinnamon and sugar together and throw your apple slices in! The suggestion from the other site said to sprinkle, but I love the intense flavor when I coated them well.
Step 3: Heat oven at 200F degrees (do this in advance if you don’t have a gas oven like me!!!).
Step 4: Lay apple slices on a cookie sheet.
Step 5: Bake the apple slices for about 1 hour, flip over all of the slices, bake them for another 1 or more.
Step 6: Turn off oven – but leave in the apple chips for another hour! This helps your chips reach their maximum crunchy potential.
Step 7: ENJOY.

I would love to hear how your apple chips tasted as well as if you have any helpful hints or tricks to make them better!
