Yield:
40 to 46 slices

Ingredients

  • 2 large apples, such as Braeburn, Jazz, Pink Lady, or Gala, cored

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Line two or three baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Using a mandoline or a serrated knife, cut apples crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices in a single layer on baking sheets. In a small bowl combine sugar and chipotle pepper. Sprinkle apple slices with half of the sugar mixture. Use a pastry brush to brush mixture over apple slices to cover evenly. (Or, place the sugar mixture in a small sieve. Hold the sieve over the apple slices and stir the mixture with a spoon to evenly disperse the sugar mixture over the apples.) Turn apple slices and repeat with remaining sugar mixture.

  3. Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until crisp, turning apple slices and rotating pans every 30 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.

To Make Ahead:

Place cooled apple crisps in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
