I used some Macoun and Empire apples to make these and they didn’t require any special measures to prevent browning. If you think your apples will brown excessively, dip them in a solution of 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons lemon juice right after they have been sliced.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
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. Try to avoid overlapping the rings. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for approximately 3 hours, rotating once or twice. Start checking on them around 2 hours. They may be slightly pliable out of the oven, but should crisp up when cool.
Serve or store in an airtight container at room temperature.
I’ve also made these same chips using a food dehydrator set to 155 degrees Fahrenheit for around 6 - 8 hours.
