The Best Way to Slice Apples
You can use a mandolin slicer if yours comes with a setting that is thick enough. They were a little too thin for my taste, so I chose to cut them by hand (less dishes to wash this way, too). They don’t have to be perfect, and you can get 5-6 slices per apple.
You can also use a small cookie cutter or anything sharp and round to remove the core, but some clever cutting with a knife will also do. In fact, there’s no need to remove the core on the outer slices. If you’re saving the slices to make later, I’d recommend squeezing a bit of lemon juice over them to prevent browning.
Apple slice cookies are a simple, no-bake, and creative snack idea that is fast to make, making them perfect for busy parents and kids of all ages.
Your picky toddlers and preschoolers will love the fun and interactive process of making these cookies with you, while teenagers can experiment with different toppings and flavor combinations. I usually have a few myself! We are also huge fans of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls.
