Spiced Apple Slices / Apple Chips

Total Time

Spicy, Tart, and Sweet Oven Dried Apples. I like Granny Smiths but use what firm apples you prefer. I made this with candies ginger just pulse in the grinder along with the cardamom. I like the uneven amounts of spices on each slice. This way those that like it can pick the more spiced ones.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put cardamon in a coffee grinder (Used for spices not coffee. Grind till fine add rest of the sugar and spices give a couple of whirls to mix into a fine powder).
  2. Lay parchment paper on 2 cookie sheet pans.
  3. In a storage bag add spices and apples toss gently to coat, shaking excess spices off place on parchment in a single layer. You can sprinkle a little extra sugar on the slices this is optional.
  4. Dry in a 250 degree oven 1 to 3 hours depending on how juicy the apples are. Turning after 1 hour.
  5. They come out crisp,sweet and tart.
  6. Store in an air tight container if for some reason there is any left over.

Yummy! I made these today, and the house was filled with the most wonderful fragrance. I had fewer apples (only two), but used the entire spice mix, and it was great. I don't have a pampered chef corer/peeler/slicer, but I just sliced the apples thinly, and kept the peels on. I let the apples slow bake for about 2 1/2 hours. I may have overbaked a bit, because I kept testing to see if the slices were crispy; they really crisp up once they're out of the oven resting. However, they're very, very good, and are a nice snack on their own, and would be killer as salad "croutons", or a garnish for a pumpkin or squash soup...there are a lot of possibilities with this recipe. Excellent - I'll be making this a lot. Thanks, RitaL.

I don't have a pamered chef slicer and just used my mandoline. I used three gala apples, which I didn't peel. I may have over dried them a bit as they continued to look wet to me but after 3.5 hours I took them out. The wet side dried into a hard glaze after the slices cooled. The chips are very tasty. I saw this recipe posted on Facebook by the author.

These were really tasty. I overcooked mine a little, but I will know better next time. I guess when you remove them from the oven, they should still be a little soft. We dipped these in recipe #25730. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe.
