Parchment Paper with SmartGrid®

Good news for all the people baking Christmas cookies this year, Reynolds Kitchens is making things easy with their Parchment Paper with SmartGrid.

Reynolds Kitchens® Parchment Paper with SmartGrid® is so user friendly!  It’s such a great product that is essential for all your baking needs. Some of the features I LOVE include:

  • Easily cut along the lines to fit any pan
  • Nonstick! (Perfect cookies every time)
  • Space out your cookies exactly right with the built-in grid lines
  • REUSABLE! This is a time when it’s great to conserve where we can, and Reynolds Kitchens makes it easy. Reuse these sheets up to 3 times to get the most out of them.
  • Oven safe up to 425F (Cookies of all kinds don’t stand a chance)
  • Great for baking, but also measuring, rolling, pastry bags, and more!

I love any product that makes baking easier and more consistent. I just love the Parchment Paper with SmartGrid. If making these Movie Night Cookies, it’s a must have.

How long do they keep?

Movie Theater Cookies will keep for about 1 week if stored in an airtight container. We never have an issue with them lasting that long, they’re usually all eaten during whatever movie we are watching!

How do you make sure they don’t burn?

We love using Reynolds Kitchens Parchment Paper with Smartgrid anytime we are baking cookies. They help the cookies not to burn or stick, and also help us space them out evenly every time. Plus it’s reusable up to three times!

Variations and Topping Ideas

We used Reese’s Pieces, Raisinets, and Popcorn to fill our Movie Night Cookies, but the possibilities are really endless for what you could add. Here are some other ideas that we can’t wait to try next time:

  • Pretzel sticks
  • Buncha Crunch
  • Gummy Bears
  • M&Ms
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Andes Mint pieces
  • Rolos
  • Junior Mints
  • Whatever your family always buys at the movie theater concession counter! Feel free to get creative!
