It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats.
And todays tip is Greasing a Pan.
Preparing your baking pan properly before filling it can save a lot of heartbreak (and cookie-break). We recommend using a non-stick pan spray, for quick, effective coverage, but a thin coat of vegetable shortening also does the trick. When using pan spray, hold the can upright and the pan perpendicular to it; you’ll get more even coverage that way, and less sputtering from the can.
When using shortening, spread evenly with a pastry brush or a piece of waxed paper.
