  3. Spread mixture over the sheet with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Make sure the mixture is evenly spread over the sheet and not too thick or thin and bake for 2-4 hours, or until fruit leather is dry (cooking times will vary, depending on how thick you spread the mixture, and how much water is in the fruit).
