  • 2 whole apples

  • Yogurt, optional, for serving

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut apples in half. Sandwich apple in between two chopsticks. This will prevent you from cutting through the apple. Make thin slices using a knife across the width of the apple, taking care not to cut through the apple.
