Baked Apple Chips

Comment on this recipe

A yummy sweet snack that's fun to make with the kids during apple-picking season.

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 large apples, not peeled

Instructions

Heat oven to 225 degrees. Set a wire rack on a sheet of foil (to catch drips). Lightly coat rack with nonstick cooking spray. Put water and sugar in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Boil vigorously for 5 minutes, until it has the consistency of a light syrup. Meanwhile, core and quarter the apples. Cut each quarter into 10 to 12 thin wedges. Put wedges in a large metal bowl and carefully add boiling hot syrup. Toss apples with tongs until well coated. Remove the wedges separately and place them close together, not overlapping, on the prepared rack. Replace foil, bringing sides up and crimping to the edge of the rack. Bake on the rack for 2-1/2 hours at 225 degrees. Remove from the oven and loosen chips. Let cool on the rack. As they cool, they become crisp. Store in an airtight contianer.
