Fall is here in full force, and that means it’s apple season! The tree in our backyard is dropping apples faster than I can keep up, and we keep getting bags of apples in our CSA box, so I am constantly looking for new ways to use them before they have to be thrown in the compost pile.
Nora likes apples, but I can’t blame her for getting bored with eating them the same way over and over. Enter cinnamon apple chips!
A friend mentioned trying to make these recently, but hers were unfortunately a fail — they burned. My interest was piqued, though, so I decided to give them a try.
I simply peeled, sliced and cored several apples, sprinkled the slices with cinnamon, and baked them at 200° on a parchment-lined baking sheet. After an hour, I flipped the slices, and baked them for an hour on the other side. They turned out perfectly — crisp, but not burned.
Nora loved them. She gobbled them up like candy, and she seemed to enjoy the slight crunch. The grown-ups were not as thrilled with them (really, they were just kinda boring), so we’ll just leave these as a baby treat. I’m sure Nora won’t mind — more for her!
