Autumn Apples Week {Day 3 ~ Pie Crust Chips & Apple Salsa + Link-up}

Well that's quite a long title, isn't it?! Are you enjoying Autumn Apples Week so far? Do go back to Day 1 and enter the giveaway for some lovely apple tea and a muffin mix!

Today, after my rather long recipe post, you'll be able to link up your favorite apple recipes! Feel free to share old or new ones from your blog. I'll be pinning your links to my Autumn Apples Pinterest board. And if you don't blog, you can always share your recipe in the comments.

So, here's my latest apple snack/dessert idea - Pie Crust Chips and Apple Salsa! Yesss.

First, you're gonna need a batch of Buttery Cinnamon Sauce.

Then you'll need to cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples {don't worry, it's not that hard} so you can make some Apple Salsa. While the apples are cooking, you can make some Pie Crust Chips. Oh yes! :)

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples

5-8 apples {I used Fuji for 1 batch and Granny Smith for another}, cored, peeled, and sliced
1/2 - 1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 to 3/4 batch of Buttery Cinnamon Sauce
Ground cinnamon to taste

Prepare apple slices and place in slow cooker. Toss apple slices with lemon juice. Pour in Buttery Cinnamon Sauce and stir to coat well. Cook on high for about an hour or so. Stir apples and generously sprinkle cinnamon over apple slices. Cook for another 30-60 minutes until slices are fork-tender.

Apple Salsa

Finely dice cooked Cinnamon Apples. Best served either at room temp or heated slightly.

Pie Crust Chips

Rolled out pie crust {homemade or purchased}
1 egg white
Cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 450. Place rolled out pie crust onto wax paper. Whisk egg white until foamy. Brush over top of crust. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar. Place another piece of wax paper over top and flip crust. Peel back wax paper, brush with egg white, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut crust into wedge shapes {I used a pizza cutter}. Poke crust all over one side with fork. Place onto parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and cool.

Put it all together and serve it at your next Fall party! It's such a yummy snack! My son loved it all and even liked the pie crust chips just plain. You could also serve the chips with Slow Cooker Pear Sauce, Pumpkin Dip, or Sugar-Free Lemon Blueberry Sauce. So many great possibilities!

Isn't that fun?! I hope you get a chance to try it! But...don't eat it all! I need you to set aside about 1/3 cup of Buttery Cinnamon Sauce, 1/3 cup Apple Salsa, and a handful of Pie Crust Chips. We're gonna need them tomorrow!

Now it's your turn - bring some apple recipes or posts over here to link up! They can be old or new apple posts, but no more than 3 of them from one blog, please. And do visit some of the other apple posts! I plan on pinning your posts to my Autumn Apples board.

Thanks for stopping by Autumn Apples Week! Be sure to come on back tomorrow for another yummy apple recipe!

  1. Oh I wish I could make pie chips. Not sure how I would do that to make it gluten free. I'll have to think on that one. But either way it looks delicious.
    Big an apple a day keeps the doctor away so you should be good all week size hugs to you.
    Love you my friend.

    1. Maybe cinnamon sugar gluten-free tortilla chips of some kind? Not the same texture, but the flavor would be there.

  2. Thanks for sharing...I'll have to try this recipe :)

  3. Thank you for hosting :) So many apple recipes in one place! Yum yum ... I need an apple tree :)

    1. Thanks! And oh, having an apple tree would be lovely.
