    Line a baking sheet or tray with parchment paper. Pour the cooked fruit mixture onto the lined tray, spreading it out evenly to create a thin layer. Use a spatula to smooth the surface of the mixture.

    Place the tray in a well-ventilated area or a food dehydrator. Allow the Lavashak to dry completely, which may take 24-48 hours depending on the humidity and temperature. The Lavashak should be firm and slightly tacky to the touch when fully dried.
