  • Reynolds Kitchens Tips:
  • When rolling dough between sheets of parchment paper, tear long sheets of Reynolds® Parchment Paper and let the ends closest to you, hang over the edge of the counter. Anchor the parchment in place by pressing your hip against the ends that hang over the counter.
  • Bake better sugar cookies by lining your baking sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. Either side works fine. Cookies lift right off & turn out soft & golden every time.
