Appalachian Apple Chips

Appalachian Apple Chips

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Serving Size: about 60 chips


  • 5 local apples of your choice, sliced into even 1/8-1/4 inch discs
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar per baking sheet (optional)
  • Assorted spices depending on flavor desired (Lime juice-cumin-curry, cinnamon, salted or plain are all delicious.)
  • Parchment paper


  1. Set oven racks on bottom and top quarter of the oven. Preheat to 225 degress. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and dust each with powdered sugar (optional).
  2. Line sheets with apples. Do not overlap apples or they will stick together.
  3. Dust top of apples with spice combination.
  4. Place one sheet on top rack, one on bottom. Rotate baking sheets halfway through cooking.
  5. Bake for 1.5-2 hours, until apples are golden. Remove apples immediately from sheets onto a cooling rack once out of the oven.
