Using a spiraliser was brilliant for making sure they are all of equal thickness, but reducing the cooking time and keeping an eye is a good idea! They are delicious!

This recipe didn't work too well- the apples were cut too thinly, and did not turn crispy, only mushy and burnt very quickly.

I definitely won't bother making these again, the slices that were very thin just burnt to a crisp, and the ones that were slightly thicker just went mushy, and tasted like apple sauce!

I enjoyed making this easy, healthy snack for the family. However, I would probably cut the apples a bit thicker - personal preference - because I don't want them to go too crispy. Great recipe!

I really loved making these, but would suggest to cut the apples a bit thicker. I also didn't let them go completely crispy so they were a bit soft inside. I have a fan oven and they cooked a lot quicker than the recipe says.

Bit of a faff, but they taste alright, probably won't rush to make these again as they have a tendency to go soggy.

V tasty. Chopped the apple with the slicer attachment on the food processor which made it super quick. Sprayed baking paper with oil first.

Brilliant recipe, I used a mandolin to make sure the apple slices were really thin, didn't bother to turn them, and found they made lovely crisps. Agree re lightly oiling the baking paper. Delicious.

I can't do this, I've tried twice and they either burn or turn out gooey. Could be the apples I used they were windfall and I have no idea what type they are.

SERIOUSLY YUMMY! I agree with both suggestions of going with slightly thicker slices and oiling the parchment paper!

Tried these a few times as they're really tasty but quite faffy & you need to keep an eye on them. Oil the greaseproof and keep turning. Taste so nice they never make it as far as an airtight container though! : p

have made twice, the second time i cut them a lot thicker to prevent them sticking and also they were softer in the middle but still had a slight crunch rather than being totally crispy.
very tasty.

Make thicker slices and keep turning them throughout the duration of 45 mins. The apple then tastes gooey like an apple pie, but is completely healthy!

These were very delicious but they burn easily so I would recommend watching them carefully.

I nearly didn't try these because of the bad reviews but I'm so glad I did!
The important thing is you slice each apple slice as evenly as you can and that as another poster has said you OIL THE GREASEPROOF PAPER! Or they will burn.
I turned mine about 4 times whilst cooking and obviously thinner ones cook quicker than thicker ones and you want to remove them. I like mine when they're just about going crispy.

Mine got burnt even though I heated the over at the temperature suggested. Tried twice, but it didn't work at all...Sadly

great recipe! i buy these in supermarkets (already dried) and they cost me a stupid amount for what they actually are! Making them myself - takes two mins to prepare - and at a fraction of the price! thankyou for the recipe! (also used a little bit of oil to grease the paper!!!) x

Had to make two batches of these due to the apple being completely stuck to the greaseproof paper when I went to turn them as per the receipe!! With the second attempt I first very lightly oiled the greaseproof paper and also turned the slices over regularly and they turned out perfectly. Delicious and love the cinammon flavour that comes through and will definately makes these time and time again for a healthy snack for work, car journeys and for friends and family at home.
