We’re headed out of town this weekend on a college trip and I had a bunch of extra apples, so I thought “maybe I should make some apple chips for the long car ride.” I’ve eating plenty of apple chips, but never made any. I could have found a recipe, but I thought I would wing it. How hard could it be?
I sliced three gala apples…
I don’t like the core and seed, so I used a pastry tip to “core” each slice.
In the meantime, I mixed some cinnamon and sugar and a pinch of salt. And then I took it a step too far. I added some brown sugar. They looked pretty amazing.
They looked amazing even before they were baked.
If you are a baker, you know what happened next. I put them in the oven and baked them for a few hours, flipping halfway through the process. They looked great when they came out.
The epic fail you ask? The molasses in the brown sugar made them a little to sticky to bag for a car ride. The “sort of” ? The guys ate them all almost immediately, so they weren’t really a fail. That’s one of the great things about being a mom to a bunch of guys – almost nothing that edible is ever considered a fail!
