Total Time 2hours15minutes
3large applesGala, Granny Smith, Macintosh or Honeycrisp
2Tablespoonspure maple syrup
1/4teaspoonfresh ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 200F. Wash and core the apples using an apple corer.
Slice off a 1/4″ of the top and bottom of the apple and discard. Slice the remaining apple using a mandolin set to 1/8″ thick.
Spread the apple rings out onto two parchment-lined baking sheets. You can place them close together, but try to avoid overlapping the rings.
Mix together maple syrup and cinnamon in a small ramekin or bowl. Using a pastry brush, coat apple slices lightly with maple syrup mixture. Place baking sheets in oven.
Bake for approximately 2 hours, rotating once or twice. Start checking on them after one hour. Baking time will vary with apple varieties, thickness of slices, and position in the oven. They may be slightly pliable when they come out of the oven, but will crisp up when cool.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days.
A mandolin slicer makes quick work of slicing the apples, but is a job ONLY for an adult. Let the kids use the pastry brush and glaze the apples with maple syrup.
