AppleChips14 large apples, such as Cortland

4 teaspoons cinnamon

preparation

Preheat oven to 200°. Line four baking sheets with parchment paper.

Using a sharp knife or mandoline, cut apples into thin slices (if using a mandoline, cut the apple in half first, then start with the sliced part facedown on the mandoline). With a knife, remove the seeds. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on the baking sheets.

Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon over apples.

Bake the apples for one hour. Flip the apple slices and sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Bake for two hours, or until crisp. Store in airtight container.
