ApPLe wReAtH~ I love making these. I 1st slice 1/4" slices, then poke a very small hole in the middle of the slices big enough for the thread/ribbon to go through. Then Dip apple slices in vanilla extract, then dip slices in mixture of apple pie spice mix (or use pumpkin pie spice mix). To the pie spice I add: a little ground cinnamon and a just a teenie tiny sprinkle of clove. place in lowest setting oven- mine is at 120F, for 2 hrs, turn over and bake another 2-3 hrs, till thoroughly dry.
