Q: I’ve been making lemon bars for catering functions, but I’m having problems getting them out of the pan. I’ve tried spraying the pan, using wax paper (which stuck to the bars), and letting the bars chill completely. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Editor: Try lining the pan with parchment paper instead of wax paper and leave some paper hanging over the sides of the pan so you can lift the bars out.

Readers, any other suggestions?
