New Ark, New Jersey is where this trip down memory lane begins. I might have been seven or eight when my family went to visit an who that lived there. She lived alone, didn’t have kids around often, but thought to buy snacks she thought my sister and I would enjoy. Now, we were used to things like Oreo’s, Rice Krispy squares, Twinkies, and other types of kid friendly foods, and apple chips were not on our list of familiar snacks, but we gave them a try. I remember my sister not being too fond of them, but since apples were my favorite fruit, I liked them. Fast forward to the present, one day while unpacking the groceries, my oldest asked if I’d ever tried apple chips? It was then that I decided to try my hand at making them.


2 Gala + 1 Granny Smith apples
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 c. white sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 200. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Wash and core apples, then using a mandolin or a knife, cut apples into thin, circular slices and put into a bowl with lemon juice, then rinse.

Pat dry the apples before placing them on the baking sheet, then begin to coat both sides of each apple with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Now, place in the oven for a total of 3 hours; flipping once after 1.5 hours.

Finally, remove the now crispy apples from the oven, and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Serve with tea, coffee, or devour them on their own. Either way, ENJOY!
