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
Lift the pan from the foil and set on the counter. Carefully press the foil liner into the baking pan.   foil lining
