Simple but irresistible, baked apple chips deliver all the sweetness and flavor of New York apples with a satisfying crunch. Be sure to slice your apples thin for maximum crispness—we recommend using a mandoline for consistency.
- 3 large NY apples
- ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
- Place racks in the upper and lower thirds of your oven and preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Wash and core the NY apples. With a mandoline (recommended) or a very sharp knife, slice the apples horizontally into 1/8-inch-thick rounds.
- Arrange the apples in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 1 hour.
- Remove the baking sheets and switch the pans' positions on the upper and lower racks. Continue baking for 1 to 1½ additional hours, until apple chips are crisp when set out at room temperature for 2 to 3 minutes (to test the apple chips, remove a single apple slice but let the others continue baking). Once you are happy with the crispness (the total time will vary based on the thickness of your slice and the type of apple), turn off the oven and let the apples sit in the oven for 1 hour as it cools down to crisp chips further.
