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.

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

You can find shelled pistachios in the nuts-for-snacking section of your grocery store.
