Test Kitchen Tip: To prepare the baking pan, grease the inside of the pan with a light coating of butter or margarine. Add about one tablespoon of flour and tilt the pan until all greased surfaces are coated with flour. Holding the pan over the sink, tap the pan so that any excess flour is discarded.

Substitution: 6-oz. squares of semi-sweet baking chocolate can be used instead of a 6-oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
