How can you get a perfect edge on your brownies—a crisp edge with no crumbs?
Here’s the secret from Lauren Braun Costello, author of The Competent Cook, which is packed with information and tips:
Freeze the brownies for an hour before cutting!
Here’s the technique:
Before baking, line the brownie pan with aluminum foil that hangs two inches over two of the sides.
After the baked brownies have cooled completely, lift them out of the pan with the two foil handles. Place the brownies in the freezer for an hour.
Remove the brownies, peel away the foil and slice the brownies on a cutting board using a sharp chef’s knife. (Second tip: Keep your knives sharp!) Voilà.
On the other hand, if everybody in your home fights over the crusty pieces, here’s a special brownie pan that creates crusty edges for everyone!
