Cook's Tips:

For best results when baking, use butter or margarine packaged in sticks. In the grocery store, check labels carefully. Vegetable oil spreads may look the same but really don't work as well in most cookies, cakes and desserts. Sticks of butter and margarine come with the measurements marked on the wrapper so you'll be sure to get the exact amount you need.

Use the flat end of the Citrus Peeler to remove brownies from muffin cups.
