What’s the Best Way to Neatly Slice Lemon Bars? (1)

Q:I was asked to make lemon bars for an upcoming art event in my community. I love to make lemon bars but I hate slicing them.

Is there a way to get pretty little squares instead of mangled, messed up edges? I want them to look good this time!

Editor: Great question, Kerri. I often have trouble cutting up any sort of cookie bar, not just lemon bars. I have found that a hot, wet, very sharp knife helps quite a bit. Also, make sure the bars are completely chilled before cutting.

Readers, any advice?
