Questions & Answers - How To Cut Brownies
Linda, whenever I make brownies, either from a box recipe or homemade, I always end up with more brownie on my cutting utensil than on the plate. Any hints on how to get a clean cut when dividing brownies? It's so frustrating!! - Cherie (5/18/01)
How To Cut Brownies:
To make cutting easier, score the bars with a knife as soon as they come out of the oven, using a ruler as a guide.
It helps if you completely cool the brownies before cutting. You can even cool them down in the freezer somewhat hardened. Dip the sharp knife in hot water and wipe with a dry kitchen towel before making each cut.
Move the knife across the pan in an up and down sawing motion from one end to the other until they are cut.
Some people get better results by using a sturdy plastic knife or a teflon spatula to cut brownies.
