I'm buttering the pan UNDER the parchment paper? And then the paper also? Thanks!

Yes, that is stated in the directions. I'm reading this Thursday, 9/26, so I'm not sure if the directions have been amended since you read them.

Thanks Carol. I just read it yesterday. I'm perplexed why you'd need butter UNDER the parchment paper?!

I see this direction a lot in recipes where you want a little insurance that nothing or not much will stick when you lift off the pan. I think of it as extra protection in case some of the crust seeps under the parchment.

Thanks Elizabethdx! Seems like overkill to me. I'm a gambler, so when I make it with *just* parchment paper, I'll report back! :)
