Autumnal Fruit Leathers

  • recipe photo
  • Skip cookies and candy and try this naturally sweet, autumn-inspired fruit leather for a special treat.

Have fun with different cookie-cutter shapes and
fruits to fit the season.


  • Fruits of your choice, dried, fresh or frozen. For autumnal colors, we suggest, strawberries, bananas, apricots and oranges.


  • Warm the fruit in a pot on the stove and mix it into a puree.

  • Spread the puree on oil-sprayed parchment paper.

  • Place in the oven at 140° (or as low as your oven can go). Leave the oven door open a bit to let the moisture out.

  • The leathers are done when the puree isn't sticky anymore – usually 5-8 hours, depending on the oven and which fruit you're using.

  • Use a sharp knife, pizza cutter or cookie cutters to cut them. Roll them with wax or parchment paper when they're still warm.

  • Add a dash of cinnamon or vanilla if desired.
