Apricot Leather


  • 8 ounces dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 drop almond extract
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. Place apricots in a small saucepan and cover with water by 1 in. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes or until soft. Drain and cool slightly.
  • 2. Place apricots in a blender; add sugar. Cover and process until smooth. Add extract.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 175°. Line two 15x10x1-in. baking pans with silicone baking mats. Spoon half of apricot mixture onto each baking mat, spreading to form a 12x8-in. rectangle; repeat with remaining fruit. Bake 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until almost dry to the touch. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 4. Transfer to a cutting board; dust both sides with confectioners' sugar. Cut into 1/2x8-in. strips; roll up. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

    Just wondering, if you don't have a silicone mat, could you use parchment paper?
