    I have been looking for Cookie Tins everywhere.  In the stores there are none, they’re ‘out of season’.  When I look online, what I find are holiday designs.  What I’m looking for are white, plain tins, from what I gather they are called 5C white, 9 7/8 inch diameter x 3 ½ inches in depth.  I want to send off half sized Bundt cakes (Nordicware 6 cup size) in the mail and not have them wined up getting destroyed.  I found e-cookietins for $5.89, a little steep.

    Try looking at Fantes.com and also FoodServiceWarehouse.com.  Both have a good selection of bakewear.

    Thrift store, though they will most likely have something printed on them--not necessarily Holiday themed. I see them often. Usually there are a few.

    They're one of those things people hate to throw away but often have no use or room for, so in the donation pile they go!

    FINALLY!

    I tried to find pricing online with Atlantic cans, none… so I called the 800 #...

    Success!  I did have to buy an entire case of 20, but they were only $2.88 a piece for a 3C.  I really didn’t need such a large cookie tin after all.

    Thanks PeteMcC!!
