Cutting parchment paper to fit a round pan

I know, how easy, just put the pan on a piece of parchment paper and trace around it.  This is just as easy for me.  I always insert a parchment paper bottom for cheesecakes with crust or without crust and always leave a little extra up the sides for easy removal from the springform pan.  I have it broken into a step by step instructional.  It looks like a lot of steps, but when you do this for yourself, it will also be easy to you.

Cut parchment paper to cover pan.

Fold in half, side to side.

Fold in half again.

With folded side toward you, fold diagonally to the right
lining up with the edges.

Fold in half again. (Don't worry about the ragged top)

Place point in the middle of the pan and crease to mark the
edge of the pan (this will leave a little extra for cheesecakes
or you could trim to the inner edge of the pan to cover
just the bottom for cakes)

Cut your mark straight across.


Place in pan.
