I used Braeburn apples, and I think it would be fun to try this with different ones, experiencing the different flavors.
Maggie suggested using canola oil spray, but I neglected to do that using the lemon juice instead.
I really liked these. They make a great snack and I think little kids would like them. My older kids did.
I rate everything I bake on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and these Baked Cinnamon Apple Slices earned 3 rolling pins.
I probably should have left them in the oven so that they could become a little crisper, but I was impatient, and we were going out. They were a little chewy, and had somewhat of a crunch to them. I think I may make some more tomorrow as the ones I made today are completely gone.
Thank you so much for coming by and taking the time to visit!!
