What is the meaning of "if I could get past the crusty edges" in this context:
There on the counter sat a scrumptious-looking pan of freshly baked brownies. Well, they looked good if you could get past the crusty edges, which I was okay with at the moment. Without bothering to say hello to my mother, I dug in.
This passage is from the book Fire in Frost.
I want to know what does the phase exactly mean here. What is meant by "get past the crusty edges"?
