2 large Ontario apples 2
2 tbsp sugar 30 mL
1 tsp cinnamon 5 mL


Before you begin: Preheat oven to 200ºF (100ºC).

Thinly slice apples crosswise about 1/8 inch (2 mm) thick with a mandoline or sharp knife. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets.

In small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Put mixture into a sieve and sprinkle evenly over apple slices.

Bake in the top and bottom third of the oven until apples are dry and crisp, about 2 hours. Remove from oven and let ‘chips’ cool completely before transferring to a sealed container for up to 3 days.
