Pinterest: I Tried It (Apple Chips)


Welcome Pinners and friends!  If you've tried something from one of your pinboards this week and blogged about it, you can link up your post at the bottom of this one.  I really love to see what you come up with and how you interpret your pins.

I saw this one just the other day and wanted to try it out right away, and luckily, it's so simple, I didn't need to buy anything extra from the grocery store:


Apple Chips


How good do those look?  Just apples, cinnamon and sugar, and cooking spray.  The directions are super easy to follow; you just have to have two hours to hang out at home while they dry in the oven.




Verdict: Easy and tasty, but not entirely crispy.  I used a honeycrisp apple instead of a red delicious (those and pink ladies are my favorites), like the original author did, so maybe that had something to do with it.  I also do not have a mandolin in my repertoire of kitchen gadgets (but somehow did have an apple corer, which was a surprise to me) so I probably didn't get them as thin as they should be.  The ones that did turn out crispy were delicious.  The ones that weren't were also good- as evidenced by the fact that they were ready at dinnertime and had disappeared by shortly after dinnertime- but just didn't have that snap to them.  I would definitely make them again.  Maybe I'd turn the heat up just a little bit from 200 to 250 degrees and see what happens.  I really like that they didn't take much effort and they are a tasty snack.

So how about you?  How were your pinning experiments this week?  Link up below or leave a comment!  And remember- same time next week!  I had a lot of fun trying this one out and may stick to the sewing board for a little while.
