EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

For perfectly cut squares, line pan with aluminum foil before pressing crust into pan. After baking, refrigerate bars several hours before cutting. Then, lift bars from pan using aluminum foil and place on cutting board. Slice with a long sharp knife, cleaning it with a damp cloth between each slice.
