Prepare the pie filling first.
Peel and slice your apples into small pieces. Place in a medium size saucepan. Squeeze the juice from a whole lemon over the apples.
Add all of your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and apple pie spice. Mix all ingredients well and then add maple syrup.
Using a saucepan on medium high heat, cook the apples for about 10-15 minutes until they begin to brown and bubble. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Refrigerate if necessary.
To prepare the pie chips:
Heat oil in a medium sized saucepan until it reaches 365°. Proceed with caution as oil is very hot.
Remove one of the two refrigerated pie crusts and slice into small squares, about 1-2” wide.
Place a few pieces of pie crust in hot oil for 30 seconds and flip over. Cook for another 30 seconds until golden brown.
Remove pie crusts from oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drip off excess oil. Allow to cool.
Once all crust has been deep fried, lightly brush with melted butter.
Place pie chips in a large Ziploc bag with cinnamon and sugar. Gently shake to coat.
As an alternative to deep-frying, you can also cook the pie crust chips in the oven on 350° for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
