I need to make some cookie gourmet tin gifts (about 20), and I am not sure if I should line the tins with a tissue paper, and or wax paper...or not lined them at all (would that be safe?). What would professionals do? Or what would you use?
Thank you

I like lining the tins with colored tissue paper like the kind you put in a gift bag...not sure it is food safe but it sure looks good!Most of the papers etc nowadays are made from recycled un-dyed papers so that is encouraging.

I would line them with food safe tissue or wax paper directly, but underneath of that, you could always do a colorful tissue paper to make it more festive looking...

I like the idea of tissue paper as well...but I am not sure if those cookies would grease the paper, ...lets say would chocolate chip cookies grease tissue paper?? I don't know.

I'm pretty sure the paper would get greasy, what you can do is put the tissue paper under, then a round (smaller) piece of waxed paper and then your cookies, I think they would look lovely.

I have used cupcake papers and flatten to the size of the cookie to form a cup around them. A few in a stack then nestle them in with the tissue paper. I have also used grease proof doillies made for cakes and the like. I get them a bit bigger and line up the side of the tin as well. HTH

I'm making corportive cookie box (sugar cookies) for christmas and I'm using "pad" under the cookies like the ones you can find in a chocolate box.

i use doilies, you can get some pretty silver or gold ones. they look great and prevent the cookies from just being in the tin.

I got my tins from Michaels.

Wilton has Holiday parchment sheets that you can use in the tins. I found them at Michael's. They have a nice festive print and are grease proof. I believe this is the first year I have seen them. There are 50 sheets in the box for I think $6.99. I actually cut circles to fit the bottom of my tins then cut strips to line the inside walls. A little time consuming, but the food is not touching the tin. You could stuff it in there like tissue paper, too, but it is a bit stiffer than tissue and I didn't want the excess. It would be better to use that method in a box.

I saw some at Hobby Lobby - they even said they were food safe. They are 50% off as well.

Found the parchments and fell in love! Thanks for the heads up on that! I found some with little snowflakes that matched my tins with snowflakes and snowmen on them. They look so "professional" with the all matching. I did the stacked tower with the bow on 3 boxes. I have had nothing but praise for the yummies and the packaging. Even had one person swear they had to cost a fortune from a gourmet place in the city! Thanks for the suggestion. It was great to have such a nice compliment. The packaging really makes extra special.
