Fall treat: apple chips

Yeah, apple chips.  But not those processed oversweet undertasty ones in the bag from Superfresh that cost like $4 an ounce.  Homemade chips.  Who knew?  And it's so easy.

Take an apple. Or two. Or three.  Slice it super thin (you do have a mandolin, don't you?!).  Arrange on two cookie sheets on parchment paper.  Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake 1 hour at 225.  Turn them all over, sprinkle again and bake for about another hour until they are getting crispy.  Try not to steal too many directly out of the oven.  A bonus - I was getting impatient and took them out still a bit soft.  As they've been cooling, they are getting crisper.

Lovely fresh taste.  Easy. Healthy.  Pretty.  The camera battery is dead or I'd show you.  They won't last until tomorrow, so you'll just have to try it yourself.  What more can you ask for in a recipe from a girl who is trying to stay at race weight?

Update: turns out I have a camera in my phone...
