This week’s Kitchen Basics 101 post is about How to Slice Cookie Bars and Brownies Neatly. This little trick is something I just recently started doing.
Have you ever gone to slice a pan of brownies or cookie bars and
instead of nice neat pieces you end up with a mess? This used to happen to me all the time until I started baking with parchment paper.
Line your baking dish with parchment paper, making sure you leave an overhang.
Spread the dough in the pan on top of the parchment paper. Bake according to the recipe directions.
After the bar cookies have cooled, using the parchment paper, lift them out of the baking dish and place on a cutting board. The bar cookies will slide right off of the parchment paper. No sticking whatsoever.
Now you can cut into neat, even pieces.
Works great on BROWNIES too!
Give this trick a try and let me know how it worked for you. Do you have a trick you use to cut bar type recipes? I’d love to hear them!
