Baked Sweet Potato Chips

We celebrated our sweet 15 year old daughter's birthday last week and had my parents over for a little cheer before dinner. These baked sweet potato chips were a perfect accompaniment to spiced cider and crisp white wine ~just perfect for this time of year!  I sent a bag home with my parents to enjoy with their lunch tomorrow. 
If you have a mandolin or slicer that cuts vegetables thin, it makes this process much easier. I made two batches and cut the first batch of sweet potatoes by hand. Even though I couldn't get them as thin as I could with a mandolin, they were gobbled up before they were cool--- they were so yummy!
