We are nearing Christmas and most of us want to be constantly reminded that Christmas is not only celebrated once but throughout the year. What better way to be reminded than to have something cinnamon-y and something christmas-y (made up these words just now) in our taste buds all year round?
So here's one of the Cinnamon Apple Chips recipes that will surely be a hit to everyone...
STEP 1. DE-CORE AND SLICE THE APPLES
There is no limit to how many apples you want to turn into chips. An apple could probably give you approximately 10-12 pieces depending on the thickness of your slice. But if you love apples and do not care about the numbers, just 'chip away' every last one of them. Believe me, it would not last that long.
The first step would be the de-coring of apples. However, this would give you chips with round centers, which would not be as attractive as when it is not de-cored. I would personally suggest no de-coring.
By slicing the apple crosswise, you would get the star-shaped middle. Or you can use a mandoline in order to get that perfect uniform apple slices.
STEP 2. LAY IN BAKING SHEET AND SPRINKLE WITH CINNAMON SUGAR
Lay your apple slices on your baking sheet or on a silicone baking mat so they just peel right off. You can spray oil on the sheet but this is optional.
In a bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar.This is now what we call 'Cinnamon Sugar' and even if you do not finish it in one go, you can store and save it for another batch.
Now, my favorite part, SPRINKLING!
STEP 3. BAKE
Pre-heat oven to about 3000F. Bake for about 30-60 minutes. Constantly check the apple slices since they tend to get burnt easily.
Halfway through the 60 minutes, flip over the slices and return it in the oven until you get the crunch that you want.
STEP 4. EAT AHOY!
