Apples going spare? We seem to always have a glut in our house, so I did a little thinking and made a batch of apple crisps as a snack for the children. These children are now addicted to them. Good job that they’re super-easy to make, healthy as, well, apples, and cheaper than a bag of deep fried salty potatoes.
It’s nearly Christmas, so a dusting of aromatic cinnamon seemed only appropriate.
- Core your apples (although this isn’t essential if you can be bothered picking out the pips).
- Slice them thinly using a mandolin or a food processor. I cut them to 2mm thick to get a crisp result. Any thicker and they become chewy.
- Lay the slices out on a baking sheet making sure they don’t overlap.
- Dust them with cinnamon powder.
- Bake at 110°C fan (120°C conventional oven) for 25 minutes.
- Flip them over and bake for a further 20 minutes or until they’re perfectly crisp.
The crisps will store for a few days in an airtight container if you can resist them…
