Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 27 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes
Servings 4 -6


  • 2 small apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a wire rack with cooking spray and place in a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan.
  • Bring sugar and water to boil in a medium saucepan and stir frequently.
  • Using a mandoline, slice apples into 1/16-inch thick slices.
  • Quickly, before they start to brown, place apples in boiling sugar mixture. Turn heat down to a simmer. Cook apples, stirring often, until translucent and syrup starts to thicken, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and quickly remove apples from syrup 1 at a time using tongs and place flat on wire rack set inside jelly roll pan. Discard excess syrup.
  • Bake apples 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to lightly greased wax paper. They will feel soft at this point but will crisp up as they cool.
