Crisp Apple Chips
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line two or three baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.Advertisement
Using a mandoline or a serrated knife, cut apples crosswise into 1/8-inch slices. Arrange slices in a single layer on baking sheets. In a small bowl combine sugar and apple pie spice. Sprinkle apple slices with half of the sugar mixture. Use a pastry brush to brush mixture over apple slices to cover evenly. (Or, place the sugar mixture in a small sieve; holding the sieve over the apple slices, stir the mixture with a spoon to evenly disperse the sugar mixture over the apples.) Turn apple slices and repeat with remaining sugar mixture.
Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until crisp, turning apple slices and rotating pans every 30 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks. Store apple slices in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
