Autumnal Fruit Leathers
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.
