Tip for Lining a Pan with Foil

By Fine Cooking Editors, editor

May 5th, 2010

Have you ever tried to line a baking pan with foil only to have the foil tear as you try to press it into the pan’s corners? Here’s a simple yet ingenious solution to that frustrating problem from contributing editor Abigail Johnson Dodge, author of Ultimate Fudgy Brownies.

Using the pan as a guide, tear off a long sheet of heavy-duty foil and lay it flat on the counter. Center the baking pan on the foil. Press the foil up against the outside of the pan and fold the corners neatly.   foil lining
