BETTY'S TIP: Think outside the square! To cut triangle shapes, cut squares diagonally in half. To cut diamond shapes, first cut parallel lines 1 or 1 1/2 inches apart down the length of the pan, then cut diagonal lines 1 or 1 1/2 inches apart across the straight cuts. You will find irregularly shaped pieces in the corners at the ends of the pan-consider those extra treats for snacking!
