Cinnamon Pear Chips

Good morning everyone!!!

It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co again- here to share with you one of my favorite fall snacks.

I love the fall season.  The colors, the sights, the smells.  I just can’t get enough.  I have been looking forward to fall in our new home of Northern Idaho since we arrived at the tail end of it last year.  We had made a quick trip up here in Mid-November to find a house on short notice & the leaves were all over the ground.  The colors were still beautiful though & I am so very much looking forward to seeing the whole season.

 Since the cooler air arrived this past week here- things like baking, apples, pears & the smell of cinnamon have been consuming my house.  So I decided to take an old family favorite of apple chips & change it just a little.  I decided to make Pear Chips instead.  LOVE how they turned out.

Cinnamon Pear Chips

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Spray baking pan lightly with cooking spray.

Slice your pears very thin & lay on pan in single layer

Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture

Bake 2 hours – turning pears over half way through.

Transfer to wire rack to cool.

** They are ready to eat at this point however they can be less than crisp.  I decided for photo purposes to place them back in the oven.  I had been baking something else after I made these, so my oven was then set at 350 degrees.  I pulled out what I was making & turned the oven off.  I placed the pear chips still on the sire rack in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.  This really browned them up & made them more crisp.  Just what I was looking for.   This is entirely optional.

 

Enjoy a simple & tasty snack on these cooler fall days!!

Thank you so much Melanie for sharing your space with me today. It’s been a pleasure!
