Best of all, these easy brownies also require minimal clean-up. Although plenty of people have discovered the ease of making sheet pan dinners, these handy kitchen staples also work well for baked goods, too. "Sheet pan baking is ideal for the hesitant or hurried baker because it’s so easy," said food writer and recipe developer Posie Harwood in A Cup Of Jo.
