Melted Butter Greasing

If you have a recipe that asks for melted butter and the greasing of a pan (like my granola bar recipe), don't waste shortening or oil to grease your pan, just smear the excess melted butter clinging to the bowl you melted it in onto the bottom of your pan. Works great and you were just going to wash it down the drain anyway.

When I've used a stick of butter, I fold the paper cover in half and stick it back in the fridge. These are great for greasing pans later.

i'm so glad someone already commented about using the papers from sticks of butter for greasing pans. its a trick i picked up from my mom, but i thought i was the only one who did it.
