Fruit Roll Ups

I found a great recipe for fruit roll ups. I love it, the boys love it. It's super easy.

Fruit Roll Ups
25 oz apple sauce
3 oz  flavor jello

parchment paper
2 cookie sheets
spatula, an off set spatula works best for me.

Set oven to your lowest setting (mine is 170°).

Place parchment paper on cookie sheets.
 - Depending on the placement of the parchment paper, you can have a lot of short strips or a few long strips. 

Mix the two ingredients together. Pour a portion of the mixture onto one cookie sheet. Spread thinly and evenly over parchment paper. Repeat

Dry in the oven for 5-8 hours. The length of time depends on how thin the mixture was spread and the moisture content. After about 3 hours, I rotate and turn the trays.

At hour 5, it I start checking firmness and tackiness. If it is firm but sticky, leave it in and check in 30 minute increments.
-If the middle is a little sticky, that's ok. Drying too long will make the sides brittle. 

Lift the parchment paper from the cookie sheet, and roll into a tube. With scissors, remove any uneven edges, then cut into pieces.

Store in an air tight container

Servings: about 20
