Oven Dried Apple Chips

Homemade apple chips make a tasty and delicious snack; learn how to dry your own apple chips.

If you've ever been served apple chips when dining at a restaurant, you probably can remember just how sweet, elegant and subtly crunchy they can be--a simple but delicious luxury. Apple chips are easy to prepare at home. Just select the finest unblemished apples you can find, such as Ida Reds or Granny Smiths. To make these correctly, you must slice the apples very thinly; a mandoline or electric slicer will help you achieve thin slices. If you don't have either tool, use the sharpest knife you own to slice the apples paper thin.

Oven Dried Apple Chips

  • 2 uncored apples
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Slice off the bottoms of the apples. Using a mandoline, slice the apples thinly, applying even pressure. Be sure each slice has the same thickness. Turn the apple one-quarter turn after each slice to prevent torn skin.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cover the parchment with the apple slices arranged in a single layer. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar over the slices.
  3. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Cool completely on a cooling rack. Store apple chips in an airtight container up to 1 day.
