Expert Tips

Place food directly on Reynolds® Parchment Paper and bake as directed. Treats will bake evenly and release from paper with ease. Plus, because you're baking right on the paper, clean-up is a breeze.

You can bake the cookies up to two months ahead stored tightly covered in the freezer.

For even baking, make sure cookies are of the same shape and size.
