I don’t think you need it. Baked goods keep just fine in regular tissue paper. But if you notice, when you buy a donut, the tissue paper is almost coated with a very thin waxy substance? It is resistant to bacteria and food contamination.

Just use cute tissue paper =]

Hmmm … I never had food wrapped in tissue paper! Not sure. Maybe you could just put those doiley thingys

This may not be the look you’re going for, but what about using parchment paper and tying it up with baker’s twine? I think they’d look cute sitting in little boxes.

Glassine paper or wax paper would work. Maaaartha has some in her line at Michael’s and I’ve seen it other places. The oil/butter in the cookies will stain regular tissue paper.

I was going to suggest wax paper.  You could wrap the cookie in wax paper and then use tissue paper around the wax paper.

How about putting the cookies in plastic wrap or plastic bags before wrapping in tissue? I think that’s what we’re going to do. Well, provided I stop changing my mind about our food favors… 🙂

I would use wax paper or freezer paper at least on the bottom of the packaging.  That would prevent any oils and such from staining the pretty tissue paper. 

I don’t know what color tissue paper you’d be using (or even if you would choose tissue paper), but if you decide to go that route, I’ve got a TON of French Vanilla tissue paper left over from pomanders that I made months ago.  I’ve got it at home, but can easily bring it into Austin any day of the week and meet up with you.  If you’re interested, just send me a mesage.  You’re more than welcome to some of it!
