Apple Chip Failure

I was inspired by the apple chip article earlier this fall to make apple chips this afternoon. Or rather, to make apple-things. I followed the recipe here, as I happened to have Galas on hand. I sliced the apples to ~4mm thick (slightly more than recommended) with my food processor, as I don't own a mandoline. I had the apple slices in the oven 1.5x the time listed, and still don't have crispy apples. What I do have is slightly wet things that are vaguely reminiscent of dried apples.

What did I do wrong? I live near Denver, so should I have adjusted for altitude somehow? Is the recipe just bad?
