Dried Pear Chips

This twist on the classic fruit crisp favorite is not only a fresh and mouthwatering treat, but it also stars as an eye-catching garnish!


Whip these delicious chips up for a healthy, on the go snack, or pair with your favorite CorEats’ treats. Not only will they kick your treats up a notch, but guilt-free loves to be beautiful as much as it loves to be scrumptious! 


 

Ingredients

2 firm, underripe pears, sliced thin 1/8"

Cinnamon *Optional

Maple Syrup, maple sugar, coconut sugar, or Golden Lakanto *Optional

Fresh lemon juice *Optional


Process

1. Preheat your oven to 225°.

2. Line your baking sheet with parchment.

3. Using a Mandolin or sharp paring knife, very thinly slice apples lengthwise, roughly ⅛’ thick, and place in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet. Brushing your apples with about 1/2 Tbsp. of fresh squeezed lemon will help keep your chips white.

4. Bake for 1 ½  hours. Flip slices and continue baking until darkened slightly and edges have curled (they should still be pliable), for 1 to 1 1/2 hours total. 

5. Transfer slices to a wire rack and let stand until cool and crisp. 

6. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
