I have found that when I did just apple on it's own I had splitting so now I always add some mango to it.
I find that the inside dries faster so I rotate the tray about half way through.

turn them and flip them over as soon as they are semi handle-able.

aw yes. the cracking is from too hot/too long. what i did was took them out *without bending them* when the 'sheen' is gone from the leather. and then i set them out on the counter for a day to i dunno, reabsorb some moisture. but they get bendy again. i threw a ton into 'for me' pile before i figured that part out.
