There’s really no snack like cinnamon apple chips, especially this time of year. They’re just so satisfying! But buying them packaged gets pricey quick, while making them yourself is not only cheap and easy, but will fill your house with the sweet scent of apples and cinnamon. Mmm. If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can bake them at 200F for about two hours on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You’ll want to keep an eye on them, though, to make sure they don’t burn and to rotate them periodically if your oven has hot spots. As for the apples to use, I favor sweet red ones like Fuji or Gala, but absolutely any kind of apple will do. Having a mandolin slicer is definitely useful for this recipe, too.
