Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 apples, fresh (sliced paper thin)
    Mix of Splenda and ground cinnamon

On top of 2 large cookie sheets, use parchment paper or cooling racks (like you'd use for cookies). If using cooling racks, line cookie sheets with aluminum foil.
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees.
Core, then slice 4 apples as paper thin as possible (a mandoline slicer is helpful if you have one).
Spread the apples in a single layer on top of the parchment paper or cooling rack.
Sprinkle lightly with a cinnamon/Splenda mix.
Cook in the oven for 1 hour.
Turn over, sprinkle again with Splenda/cinnamon and bake for another hour until lightly browned.
Store in an air-tight container, such as a zippered sandwich bag.

    In response to: "Not at all what I expected... I cooked them for about 1 1/2 hours and they were still soggy":
    Well, the recipe said to cook them for an hour and then turn them, and cook them ANOTHER hour...so they were probably soggy because they weren't done. - 4/5/09

    These would probably be good with only cinnamon, not sugar. I thought they tasted horrible with the sugar on them, just way too sweet. Apples taste so good on their own, I was sad I had ruined them. - 2/3/11

    These were perfect!! I flipped them at 1 hour and then when I took them out they weren't all the way crunchy, so I just upped the temp. to 235 for about 20 extra mins for the thicker ones to get crunchy.I just cut them with a sharpe knife in paper thin cuts.Turned out really good!Will def make again - 1/22/12

    I dry granny smith apples in my dehydrator..Peel, slice, and put in pineapple juice (Dole in it's own juice). The pineapple gives the apples a great taste and the apple does not oxidize. Great Snack

    These worked really well. I used a cooling rack over the cookie sheet for one batch, and placed the slices directly on wax paper over a cookie sheet for a second batch. The ones on the wax paper turned out crispier, but some stuck to the paper. Either way, they both tasted great! - 1/19/08

  • I tried the recipe tonight using one apple in case I didn't like them. They were really good. My husband tried them and ate half of the apple chips and wanted more. So I made the recipe twice tonight. I did have a few that were not crisp so I will try the potato peeler like NEWBAKER12 suggested. - 12/5/13

  • I have been thinking about these for two weeks and had the time today, so I improvised when I realized I didn't have cinnamon. I sliced and baked without any sweeteners. Turned out just the way I hoped they would - crispy on the outside and a a nice hint of flavor beneath the browned skin. - 3/3/13

  • I followed the recipe exactly and my apples were soggy. I baked them a little longer and turned up the heat a bit and they crisped up, but slightly overcooked. They didn't crisp up until they started to burn. I won't be making this recipe again. I'll stick to buying Apple chips - 10/25/12

  • I love these and try to make them when I have extra time! I used a mix of honey, water with a little cinnamon. I spray the foil with pam so they don't stick. They come out perfect! Thanks for the recipe. Much faster than the using the food dehydrator - 8/17/12

  • My oven has been running hot, and thus my apples stuck to the parchment paper pretty severely and were done before I could flip them. The ones that came free were mighty tasty, but next time I will have to do a better job of monitoring the internal temp of the oven and I'm sure it will be better. - 6/29/12

  • Used a mandoline on the gala apples which made them too thin. They were nearly transparent and difficult to turn. When done, they practically crumbled in my hand. Based on the other 5-star reviews, I will try this recipe again, but next time I will make sure the slices are a little thicker. - 6/2/11
