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.
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!
