Ground cinnamon (optional)
Maple syrup (optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 225° Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a sharp chef’s knife, slice the unpeeled pears very thin lengthwise. Leave plain, toss with cinnamon or cinnamon sugar, or brush slices with maple syrup if desired.
- Bake pear slices in pre-heated oven 1½ hours. Flip slices and continue baking until darkened slightly and edges have curled (they should still be pliable), an additional 1-1½ hours.
- Transfer to a wire rack and let stand until cool and crisp. Store at room temperature in an airtight container up to a week.
