Baked Apple Chips

This is a GREAT fall snack. My daughter and husband loved it!

1 cup each water and sugar (I think you could use less, maybe 1/2 cup each)
2 large apples


Heat oven to 225 degrees. Set an 18x14.5 inch wire cooling rack on a sheet of foil (to catch drips). Lightly coat rack with nonstick cooking spray. (I placed foil on a rimmed baking sheet and then put wire cooling rack on top.)
Put water and sugar in a 2 qt. saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil vigorously 5 minutes until it is a light syrup consistency.
Meanwhile, core and quarter apple. Cut each quarter into 10-12 thin slices. Put in large metal bowl and carefully add boiling hot syrup. Toss apples with tongs until well coated. Remove slices and place close together (not overlapping) on prepared rack.
Bake 2 1/2 hours. Loosen chips; let cool on rack, (As they cool they become crisp.) Store in airtight container.

This doesn't make a whole lot. Next time I would double or quadruple the recipe if you have enough wire racks.

Are the wire racks needed? Couldn't you just bake them on a cookie sheet then put on a wire rack to cool.
