2 Granny Smith apples
Preheat oven to 225F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment
paper. Sift 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar evenly onto lined
baking sheets. With a mandoline or other manual slicer cut apples
crosswise into paper-thin slices. Arrange apple slices in one layer
on sheets and sprinkle evenly with remaining 3 tablespoons
confectioners' sugar. Bake slices in upper and lower thirds of oven,
switching position of sheets halfway through baking, 2 1/4 hours
total, or until slices are pale golden and starting to crisp.
Immediately peel apple chips off parchment and cool on a rack. Apple
chips keep in an airtight container at room temperature 2 weeks.
Recommended for garnish on ice creams and apple desserts or as a
crisp, cookie-like accompaniment.
