Tips for Baking with Parchment Paper

Make perfect cookies every time. The easiest way to get perfect baked goods every time is with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. Reynolds Kitchens gives you simple tips so you can bake your best batch.

Cookie Sheets: Looking to speed the baking process along? Line your cookie sheets and pans with Reynolds® Parchment Paper or Reynolds Cooking Baking Sheets to ensure that there’s no sticky mess to clean up between batches and—best of all—even your most delicate cookies come out perfect every time.

Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper, ensuring the parchment paper doesn’t hang over the edges of the pan and does not touch the oven wall. This protects the paper from burning.

For an extra time saver, prepare another batch on a second sheet of parchment while the first batch is baking so it's ready to go when the first batch is done. 

Tip: To remove any curl on the sides of the paper store them flat sandwiched in between two cookie sheets! 

Loaf Pans: Make your favorite breads without lengthy cleanup later on. Watch Reynolds Real Moms® Finalist Katie Goodman show you how to get the perfect loaf of banana bread every time. Just use Reynolds® Parchment Paper to line the pan before baking and toss when you’re done!

Cake Pans: It's easy to make perfect cake layers that won’t stick to the pan. Start by turning your cake pan upside down on top of a sheet of Reynolds® Parchment Paper. Using a pencil, trace around the bottom edge of a cake pan. Then cut out a circle using a pair of scissors.
