I’m excited to share this recipe for pumpkin fruit roll-ups.
Earlier this year, I learned how easy it was to make my own fruit leather/fruit roll-ups. While baking with some pumpkin puree, I suddenly got the idea to try to make fruit roll-ups with the puree. I wasn’t sure it would work as I’ve never seen pumpkin flavored fruit leather, but a few hours later and I had my fruit leather.
These are delicious. It tastes a little like pumpkin pie in fruit leather form. I only used cinnamon spice, but if you use pumpkin pie spice it will probably taste even more like pumpkin pie.
The pumpkin rolls didn’t look as pretty as some of the other fruits I’ve used. Some parts of the sheet had crack lines. But it’s still really good and worth making.
Pumpkin Fruit Roll Ups
3 cups pumpkin puree
about 1/2 cup water
2 tsp cinnamon (you can also use pumpkin pie spice if desired)
about 5 tbsp sugar
1. Turn oven to lowest temperature setting. Mine is at 170F.
2. Mix pumpkin, water, cinnamon and sugar in blender until smooth. Taste to decide if you need more sugar. The consistency should be thick, but you should be able to pour it out and spread across silpat mat. If your mixture is too thick, add a little more water and blend again. Pour mixture onto silpat mat and spread evenly across so that it's a thin layer laying on top of the silpat sheet (a little more than 1/8 inch thick but less than 1/4 inch). Bake for about 6 hours or more until fruit leather is dry. After it cools, you can cut and roll up with sheets of parchment paper.
