Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
  • tip 2
    To cut brownies easily, use a plastic knife.
