Spiced Apple Chips

Ingredients:

-Fruity Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olive Oil Etcetera

-2 Tablespoons sugar

-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

-2 (6-7 ounce) tart apples, Granny Smith recommended

Directions:

Position racks at the top and bottom of the oven and preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 large (12x8inch) baking-sheets with parchment paper. Lightly coat the parchment paper with Fruity Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Stir the sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small mixing bowl until blended. Stand each apple upright on cutting board. Cut 1/4 inch vertically off the right and left sides of each apple. Set a mandoline for cutting 1/6-inch-thick slices. Place 1 apple, a cut side down, on the mandoline. Using the guard, carefully cut slices until you reach the core. Turn the apple over and cut slices off the remaining side until you reach the core again. Arrange the apple slices in a single layer (without overlapping) on a prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the second apple. Sprinkle the apple slices generously with the cinnamon sugar. 

Bake the apple slices for 30 minutes. Reverse the sheets from top to bottom in the oven and also rotate them from back to front. Bake until the slices curl at the edges, feel crisp or almost crisp, and are deep golden, 10-15 minutes longer. Pull the parchment and apple slices onto a counter and let cool completely, 20-30 minutes. The chips will crisp more as they cool.
