One of the things I dislike about making brownies and other bar cookies, is what I wind up doing to my pans! After a couple of uses, they are all cut up from cutting the bar. I have tried lining the pan with foil and removing them before cutting, but that didn't work well for 9x13 pans, so I came up with this and guess what? It works!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • aluminum foil, double thick
  • cooking spray


  1. Line the bottom of your pan, twice, with the foil.
  2. Spray with cooking spray of choice.

I always line my pans with foil when making bar cookies and brownies and use Recipe #78579 to grease it instead of cooking spray. Works like a charm!

This worked beautifully. Instead of spray I rubbed the foil with the butter wrapper. Thanks for sharing HH. Made for My 3 Chefs.
