Expert Tips

Ungala Gillespie from St. Petersburg, FL created this recipe for a Celebrate the Season Holiday Cookie Contest.

"Can you say chewy? I have always loved the texture of a hearty oatmeal cookie and I’ve always been a fan of a chewy cookie over a crisp one. This is why I love this cookie so much. Tart but sweet and very chewy!" Ungala Gillespie

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’ll need 1 medium orange for the grated peel in the cookie dough and the juice in the icing.
