How can I get a clean cut when cutting brownies. The tops all seem to crack and jagged, then always end up with messed up pieces. All advice welcomed, please.

Plastic Knife. I just cut brownies yesterday with one of those knives that grocery stores give with their cakes, it worked great no mess.

I live in Norman, My Grandma is from Newcastle...Just thought I'd throw that out there. That said, there are those pans you can buy that have the perfect cut. Then you don't even have to mess with it. Just pull off the grid and they're precut icon_smile.gif

Try cooling the brownies completely and then use a pizza cutter. Works like a charm.

Personally, I like to thinly slice the harder edges off the brownies....for....myself... icon_biggrin.gificon_wink.gif

I like to bake my brownies in mini muffin pans. There's no cutting to deal with, and every piece gets an edge (everybody fights over the edges in my house).

When we used to have our old shop, we let it cool, freeze for a bit and cut. All done in the same day.

I do this, too! My DH just bought me the Perfect Brownie pan set for Xmas and it makes suuuuper clean cut edges. They don't get as chewy like true "corners" do in a square pan, but the neatness is wonderful.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the perfect brownie pan! I make everything I can in it! I've had it since September and it has never failed me yet!
