Little Guy's Apple Chips

Note:     Little Guy is having so much fun with his new food processor.    The first night he got it he wanted to chop and mix everything.     To try out his slicing blade, he grabbed a few apples and ran them through.    Immediately he said, "I bet we could make apple chips with these!"      So we did.      What a delicious snack.



1-1/2 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 large crisp apple (Braeburn or Granny Smith)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.     Mix together sugar and cinnamon.   Wash apples and run through slicing blade of your food processor.    

( If you don't have a food processor, use a knife to quarter the apple lengthwise.     Cut up the slices as thin as possible.)  

Spread the apple slices on the baking sheet in one layer.     Sprinkle with spice mixture.     Bake for 1 1/2 hours.     Rotate the pan and bake another hour or until crisp.      If you don't think they are crisp enough, just turn off the oven and leave them pan inside until desired crispness.

Once they are done, remove from the oven, cool and then transfer to a container with a lid.      Yummy!

Here I am. Our office has been closed and as most people know "I'm the only computer geek in the world that doesn't own a computer"!

I'm really proud of your son for taking cooking so seriously. I think it's great!!!
