Puree fruit in your food processor until smooth. If desired, press through a sieve to remove seeds. Stir in applesauce, lemon juice, and sugar, until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour into the prepared baking pan, and spread to just shy of the parchment edge, making sure the center isn't thicker than the edges.
Place into oven, propping the door open with a wooden spoon. Bake for 7 hours or until the center is just slightly sticky. Allow to cool and slice with a pizza cutter or kitchen shears. Store in airtight container.
Note: If you're like me and accidentally overbake your fruit and the edges get crisp (while the center is perfect), sprinkle water on the crisp areas. They'll soak up the moisture and become pliable again.
* The amount of fruit it takes to get 2 cups pureed will vary. It took me about 1 1/2lbs of strawberries to yield 2 cups once they were pureed.
