It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Cutting Into Bars.
Cutting Even and Smooth Bars
Most bar cookies are baked in a square or rectangular pan. The simplest way to divide these cookies evenly is by cutting the sheet of baked dough in half, then cutting the halves in half again. When using uncoated metal pans, we’ve found a bench knife is a wonderful cutting implement for bar cookies.
