I found this online. The spices are optional, I used the cinnamon only. Also, they don't keep well, so gobble them up quickly!


  1. Add sugar and water to a medium pot over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from burner and set pot aside. Without peeling or coring, slice apples from top to bottom about 1/16 of an inch thick using a mandoline. After slicing, remove stems, seeds and fuzzy apple bottoms with a paring knife, or you can use an apple peeler, separating each ring. Add the spices to to the warm simple syrup, add sliced apples and soak for about 10 minutes. Stir 5 minutes into soaking. (you can add a few dashes of fruit fresh or 1 tablespoons lemon juice if you like).
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Lay the apples on the parchment being careful not to overlap. Bake at 250°F for 75-90 minutes until lightly browned. Let apples cool completely. Note: apples will harden more once cooled.

Yum! I used wax paper instead of parchment which was a bit mistake. The apples stuck and I ended up eating alot of wax paper! But they were so good. I'll make them again using parchment paper. Thanks Pam! Made for PRMR.

We enjoyed these very much! My DH and I had tried making apple chips in our dehydrator only with disapointment! But I think this recipe will work in the dehydrator too and I plan on trying it for the drying part. I was able to get braeburn apples and I used my mandoline to slice the apples to a uniform size.

We had company for dinner last night and decided to make these to top vanilla ice cream for something a little differant and still a "Fall" flavor. I used a red delicious apple (not supposed too - but that's all I could find over here) then used BOTH cinnamon and cloves - even a little heavy handed with it as we love it also did "core" the apples even though it said not to as I didn't like the idea of eating around it. Everyone enjoyed and I recieved 5 star compliments around the table. You are right though Pammy, they don't last long, and quickly turned soggy by the end of the evening - glad there weren't many left over.
