- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- 3/4 cup sugar
Heat oven to 200 degrees. Place a Silpat (French nonstick baking mat) or parchment paper on a baking sheet. Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, slice apple and pears into very thin translucent rounds (slice pears lengthwise). Do not remove seeds or cores.
Place sugar on a plate; dip both sides of fruit slices into sugar to coat. Transfer slices to baking sheet.
Bake until edges begin to ruffle, about 1 hour. Turn slice over and continue baking until golden brown, about 1 hour more.
Transfer chips in a single layer to a wire rack to cool and harden.
