So do you ever find yourself baking late at night, and then wondering what to do about that still-warm sheet of cookies/pan of brownies/tin of pie?
Go to bed.
It’s ill-advised to cover hot or warm baked goods using traditional wrappings (plastic, tin foil, etc.). Steam and/or condensation will form – even if there’s just a bit of warmth emanating – and this will result in soggy cookies/brownies/pie. Sad face.
What you CAN do is use a clean dish towel – simply drape it over your pan or sheet. Your baked goods will stay fresh overnight, and no worries about steam forming.
This tip is so second-nature to me that it’s taken me till now to realize that some of you may not know it (#oops).
Oh – and look for those brownies later this week – it’s the last popsicle of the season (welp) and it’s a good one!
