Baking Tip

Line your brownie pan with foil before baking, then simply lift up the edges of the foil to easily remove brownies after they cool.

Baking Tip

For uniformly sized brownies, first trim off edges, then use a ruler and toothpicks as guides when cutting. For cleaner edges, freeze for 30 minutes before cutting.
