TIP OF THE DAY: The Perfect Brownie Edge

  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!
