It’s almost that time of year. Christmas! In four days to be exact. For me this is the first day of winter break and I started it out with wiping out these bad boys.These cinnamon apple crisps are perfect to eat during this time. Or actually all the time. They are also so much healthier than regular chips, because these are baked and not fried. It feels so great to be able to bake with no distraction from school. We finally had our Tale of Two Cities test in English, and oh boy that test was difficult. The whole test is basically a bunch of questions with answers that can be use more than once, or not at all. I hope I didn’t bomb that test. Anyways, you probably aren’t interested in hearing my horrible, teenage life, so lets get started on these apple crisps.
Step 1: With a pan, line with parchment paper.
Step 2: Mix 4 tablespoons of sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon together in a plastic bag.
Step 3: Choose an apple and slice with a mandolin slicer. I’m using Gala apples. Start slicing the apple from the bottom. If you slice the apple from the side, the shape of the slices won’t turn out circular.
Step 4: Core the apple. Okay, I didn’t have a small cookie cutter or anything small to cut out the core, so I used those medicine cups you get with your liquid medicine. It worked just find but they cut the middles a little to big. The apples just look like apple rings now. I also used a knife to cut out the tiny pieces of the core in the apple.
Step 5: Sprinkle and bake. Sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar onto the apple slices Then stick them in the oven for one hour.
Step 7: Flip and bake more. After an hour has passed take the tray out of the oven and flip the apple slices over. They will still be slightly soft and will stick to the parchment paper a bit. Once all flipped, return the tray back into the oven for another hour.
Step 8: Cool and Enjoy. When finished baking leave the apple crisps to cool down on the pan. When totally cooled they are ready to be eaten.
1 Red Gala Apple sliced (or any apple of your choice)
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.
Stir together the cinnamon and sugar to combine. Set aside.
Decide whether or not to core your apples. Taking a mandolin slicer, slice the apples into thin pieces. Line the apple slices on the parchment paper, making sure not to overlap them. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar onto the slices.
Bake in the over for 1 hour. After an hour has pasted. Remove the pan from the over and flip the slices over. Then stick them back into the oven for another hour.
When finished let them cool on the pan and then serve.
