About this recipe

"When I was a kid, I loved to snack on dried apples. These crisps have a lot of great apple flavor, but with the added crunch of the toasted peel. Be sure to cook them thoroughly so they swap their chewy texture for a nice, light snap." -- Sherri Brooks Vinton, author of Eat It Up!
