Tips for Cutting and Storing Brownies
Feeling inspired to make brownies? Here are a few tips for cutting and storing leftovers so you can savor them well after they come out of the oven.
Brownies are easier to cut if you place the pan in the freezer for several minutes before cutting the first piece. Dip a sharp knife in hot water, wipe it dry and move it across the pan in an up-and-down sawing motion.
After you cut the brownies, either cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil or remove the brownies and place them in an airtight container. At room temperature, they’ll keep for three to four days, unless they have perishable ingredients such as cream cheese (in that case put them in the refrigerator right away). In general, brownies will last in the refrigerator for about five days.
