  8. Place the pan on a cooling rack and allow brownies to cool in the pan until completely set. Once set, if you used parchment paper, remove the brownies from the pan using the sides of the paper, place them on a cutting board and cut them. If you used cooking spray, you will need to cut them directly in the baking dish.
