Baked Apple Chips

It is a really cold, really rainy, really windy day here in Michigan….which to me means it’s a great day to stay inside curled up with a good book. Right now I’m reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I just started it, and haven’t gotten very far but it sounds like a great read.

Nothing goes better with a good book than a cup of hot tea. To go with my tea I made some baked apple chips.

To make the apple chips, preheat your oven to 200 degrees

Slice three apples (or however many you want) about 1/8 of an inch thick (you can slice them using a mandolin, or with a sharp knife, whatever you prefer. I used Honey Crisp apples, but you can use any type of apple.

Arrange your apples in a single layer, on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a Silpat…if you don’t have parchment or a silpat, spray your baking sheet with some non-stick cooking spray. When you have them arranged on the sheet, spray the apples with non-stick spray before you put them in the oven,

Bake your chips in the oven for two hours @ 200 degrees.

***NOTE: When the two hours are up, you will take your chips out of the oven, and ask yourself “Why aren’t they crispy…they’re supposed to be chips?!”
LET THEM SIT OUT! Leave them on the baking sheet, or put them on a plate….I guarantee that they WILL become crispy…you have to trust me on this***

Now, normally chips are served with some sort of dip right?? Salsa, Guacamole, Cheese, French Onion dip….you get where I’m going with this??

To go with the apple Chips, my mom whipped up a dip:

1 8oz. package of cream cheese
1 C. Peanut Butter
1 C. Brown Sugar
and a little bit of milk

Mix this all up, chill for a few hours and serve with your apple chips!

Beware: These are ADDICTING!! You will want to eat them all and not share…..please try to show more restraint than me! : )

Enjoy!
