Lining a Baking Pan with Foil {Tips and Tricks}

Find out the easy way for lining a baking pan with foil! Plus learn more tips and tricks in the kitchen. 

One tradition we have in our family is a cookie party after the holidays. Every year on the day before the cookie party we make all of the cookies. So I headed over to my husband’s aunt’s house to help out with the cookie baking. Now by cookie baking, I mean cookie baking. Like 8 different types of cookies. Lots. Of. Cookies.

While making the cookies this year we had an oops. We were melting chocolate and it seized. So we had to figure out something to do with it. And I decided to try and make brownies… or so I thought. The “brownies” I made didn’t turn out so well but the tip I learned while making the brownies… priceless!

My husband’s aunt saw me trying to line the pan with foil and quickly showed me this neat trick. Maybe I’m the last one to know about it but I thought I’d share anyway just in case anyone else didn’t know!
