Honeycrisp Chips

I find it somewhat rare to meet someone whose favorite season isn't fall.  Have you noticed that?  There's something about the season - the cider mills, the cider mill smells, stunning jewel-toned hues, a crispness to the air that makes you reach for your favorite sweater, pumpkins and apples... 

And speaking of apples - apple chips!  Now that I live in Minnesota, home to the honeycrisp apple (yes, it was invented here), I find every excuse to eat them.  Like I needed an excuse.  

These apple chips are very easy to make, as long as you are down for some low-and-slow bake time.  Patience is required, but the reward was great.  I whipped up a goat cheese yogurt dip (some goat cheese, some plain yogurt, a little honey, all whipped together) to accompany them as a mid-morning workday snack.

Apples. (Go for your favorite kind) 

Using a mandolin, slice apples horizontally into thin disks; shoot for 1/8 in.  Remove seeds and arrange on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  In a 225 degree oven, let the apples bake for 2.5-3 hours, flipping halfway through.  Let cool completely and store in an air-tight container.
