  • 4 medium apples cored and sliced into thin rings. 1/4" thick slices will produce a crispier dried apple, 1/2" thick will produce a dried apple with a little more substance and chewiness.
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground cloves


  1. Heat oven to 200 F.
  2. Wash, core and slice apples.
  3. In a large bowl, gently toss apples and spices.
  4. Lay each individual ring/piece flat on a rimmed, parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Baking time will vary depending on thickness and how crisp you want your apple rings.
  6. Take a wooden spoon and use it as a wedge to prop the oven door slightly ajar during the drying process. This allows the moisture to escape the oven.
  7. A general timeline would be 1.5 - 2 hours, flipping the apples halfway through and rotating the cookie sheets. 2 hours will give you crisp apple rings that are more like apple chips.
