If you haven't tried making your own pita chips, you definitely should start now. Not only are they increddibly easy, but they'll save you soooo much money. These would be great to bring for all those holiday parties. I think it actually takes less time to make these than it does to run to the store and back (if you bought the pitas ahead of time). Isn't it great to be able to plan ahead a bit and relax during all the running around this time of year.
These chips have just the right amount of crunch to them! I was msot impress that they stayed crunchy through the next day, though I do prefer them warm out of the oven. This was the first time I used my silicone baking mat and I absolutely loved how easy it made everything. I picked up a packet of them at Costco, and now I want to get a few more. Nothing stuck to it, and the oil was very easy to clean off. You don't even need to flip the chips halfway through. I highly recommend picking up one or two, but if you don't have one I'm sure aluminum foil would work.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I know it's hard to keep the stress to a minimum (it's somethign I'm working on myself), but this is a great time to have fun and laugh with family and friends. I wish everyone safe and happy holidays! Let me know if you have any special plans for this time of year! I'm curious to see what everyone is up to.
