Instructions

  1. Baking Pan

    • 1

      Spread vegetable shortening or butter around the bottom and sides of the baking pan, using waxed paper, a paper towel or your fingers. Place about 1 teaspoon of flour or cocoa in the pan and tip the pan around so the flour or cocoa spreads over the shortening or butter.

    • 2

      Spray the bottom and sides of a pan with a buttery nonstick spray.

    • 3

      Line the bottom and sides of the baking pan with aluminum foil, waxed paper or parchment paper.

    Dessert Tray

      Dust the dessert tray with confectioner's sugar by placing some confectioner's sugar in a sieve and shaking it over the dessert tray.

    • 5

      Dust the dessert tray with cocoa powder by placing some cocoa powder in a sieve and shaking it over the dessert tray.

    • 6

      Place cut cookies on a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper and place it in the freezer for 1/2 hour. Take them out and place them on the tray. This will help them stay firm and not stick to the dessert tray.
