Apple chips are really easy to make, and are a sweet, healthy, crunchy snack addiction.  You don’t need to add anything at all – just bake a bunch of apple slices at 200F for an hour, then flip them and continue baking until mostly dry.  Brushing with a little optional maple syrup and cinnamon makes them extra special.

Dried Apple Chips
Ingredients
  • Apples (not optional)
  • Maple Syrup and Cinnamon (optional)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice apples thinly crosswise, using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer (about ⅛" thick).
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat sheet, and arrange slices in one layer, as many as you can fit on the cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, flip slices over and bake for another hour or until all slices are just getting crispy and very lightly browned. Continue baking as noted above.
Notes
Optional: before baking, brush the first side of the apple slices lightly with maple syrup and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. Bake for an hour, then flip and brush the other side with syrup and sprinkle again with cinnamon.

Calvados is a French apple brandy from Normandy.  Combined with the maple syrup we brought home from our last trip to Maine, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, we ended up with up a cocktail that had us longing for Fall – and pancakes!

  • 1½ oz calvados (or apple brandy)

  • green apple slices
Instructions
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the calvados, maple syrup, lemon juice and ice and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into glass filled with ice and add the green apple slices as a garnish.

If you have a mandolin slicer you can make these cute cross-section slices that show off the star shaped apple core. Also, don't throw away your apple garnish after you finish your drink - it's delicious after having been soaking in the cocktail.
