Place chopped apples in a medium saucepan with water. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for about 10 minutes.
Add pitted date and cinnamon and mash. Cover and cook another 2-3 minutes on low heat.
Put mixture into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat and spread with a spatula into a thin layer.
Bake at 175-200° (as low as your oven will go) for 2-3 hours or until it's tacky but doesn't stick to your finger.
*For a tasty and unique alternative, replace the apples with pears and the cinnamon with cardamom.
