Tip #1: Line Baking Pan with Parchment Paper
You of course can bake directly in your baking pans; however a great tip is to line your baking pan with parchment paper. It can make removal and cutting much, much easier.
For starters, it’s never a good idea to cut directly in your pan. You will get scratches and knife marks/lines on your pan. If you line your pan with parchment paper and leave an over-hang, you can simply lift loosen one side of the pan with a butter knife (as not to scratch the pan too terribly) and lift the baked good out of the pan with ease.
To secure the parchment paper to the pan I use binder clips. Just don’t forget to remove them before baking if you are baking it in any sort of oven (for no-bake bars it is fine to keep them on until they are cooled.)
Lastly, I almost always spray the parchment with non-stick cooking spray too for a little insurance.
