Did you know that there is a simple tip that is the best way to cut brownies and bars? With one item you can have perfectly cut brownies and bars.
Today I have a simple kitchen tip for you. As a bonus, I am also sharing some of my favorite brownie and bar recipes.
The other day I made a pan of brownies and a pan of lemon bars to take to my husband’s office. As I was cutting them I realized that I had never shared how I cut brownies and bars.
This might be a tip that you already know about, but I thought some of my readers might not be aware of the easiest way to cut brownies and bars.
Not only is it the easiest way to cut them, but it also keeps them so much prettier for serving.
The tip is to simply use a plastic knife to cut them. Yes, a plastic knice. Like the disposable plastic kind, you use for picnics and potlucks. It really is the easiest way to cut brownies and bars.
It really is that easy. The plastic knife cuts through them so well.
It makes for perfect brownies and bars every time. That is all you have to do. Just use a plastic knife when cutting them into squares. I know it sounds too simple, but it really works.
I just keep a plastic knife in my silverware drawer so that it is handy anytime I need it. I just wash it and reuse it.

Love the tip! I will have to try this. Love the bar and brownie recipes. I live in Ohio and recently retired. Now, I can cook more. Ha!
Thanks for all your hard work.
Thanks! I hope you enjoy the brownies and bars. Congratulations on your retirement!!
What?!?!?! That sounds way too good to be true but of course I will do it. My brownies always look like they have been attacked instead of cut. Thanks so much for this simple tip that I have never heard of. Thanks!!!
I know. It sounds too easy, but it really helps. I hope it works well for you. Have a great day!
I’ve been using heavy-duty plastic knives for a long time. Not so much because they make good cuts (which they do), but I started using them so I could cut the bars or whatever right in the pan without worrying about scratches from metal utensils.
Thanks for the round-up of bars recipes. I love cookies but don’t have the patience for fussing with all the scooping and shaping, so bars are the answer for me. 🙂
Thats sounds really mouth watering. I am gonna try this today as its WEEKEND 😀 😀
Thanks a lot for the amazing recipe. Cheers!
