Paper Bakeware!!

My kitchen smells of apples and chocolate and caramel because I am trying out these fabulous paper bake ware containers!

We invite you to try Oven Safe Paper Bakeware for your holiday baking and gift giving!

A new way to bake, serve and store, these paper products replace metal bakeware.

Place the paper bakeware directly on a cookie sheet...they are oven safe to 400 degrees and freezer safe.

Share your delicious recipes with family and friends for the holidays (or do what I did, use boxed mixes for easy gifts).
