Have you ever been to a church potluck and seen a plate of brownies that look like this? It looks like Annie got into this dish and tried to “help.”
Here is a statement of fact – even if brownies look bad, they still taste AWESOME! I could eat them directly out of the dish with a spoon, so I really don’t care what they look like.
However, when you want to take a pretty plate of brownies to a potluck, you want them to look nice. You don’t want them to look like you just dug them out of the garden. The problem with the brownies on the left is that they’ve been cut with a metal knife.
If you want nice looking brownies, cut them with a plastic knife. That’s it. Let that soak in for a minute.
They won’t rip and tear if you use plastic. Your brownies will be the talk of the potluck. So, do what I do and keep your plastic knife the next time you’re at a fast-food place. Bring it home and wash it and you’ll have pretty brownies forever! Well, at least until you break that knife and have to get another one.
If you’re at home, just use a spoon and eat directly from the pan. Thanks.
