This kid-friendly fruit snack recipe requires just 4 ingredients. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 170°F. Line a 15-by-10-inch jelly-roll pan with heavy-duty plastic wrap, allowing plastic wrap to extend over edges of pan.

Step 2

Combine ingredients with 1/2 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until fruit is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Place fruit mixture in a food processor or blender; process until smooth. Strain fruit puree through a fine-mesh sieve over a bowl; discard solids. Pour strained fruit mixture onto plastic-lined jelly-roll pan. Using a spatula, spread mixture evenly to edges of pan (about 1/4 inch thick).

Step 4

Bake until center is slightly sticky, 6 to 7 hours, brushing edges with water after 3 hours, if necessary, to prevent overdrying. Remove from pan; peel off plastic wrap. Trim dry edges 1/4 inch from all sides of leather, if necessary. Cut leather in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into 13 1-inch strips. Roll up strips in parchment paper or plastic wrap.

LOL!!! I do not think that it is possible to bake with plastic wrap.... the editors must have made a typo or do not know what they are talking about, but the video showed the usage of parchment paper.

The video showed Parchment Paper.......must be a error on the written recipe.

Note that you are using an extremely low temp.  You are essentially dehydrating the leather, not "baking" it, and the heavy plastic wrap should stand up to it.  That said, I would prefer to use parchment paper, myself, just in case the plastic gives off some kind of toxin. A silpat would do nicely, too.
