I dont think I would normally rate a full 5 stars on something but this got a perfect on all of them! Its very easy to mix together as it does not get so hard like most cookie doughs and it doesnt require refridgeration. Its delicious with that authentic Snickerdoodle taste (much better than starbucks!). Theres virtually no baking time limit (8-16 minutes) as it does not burn easily. Very kid friendly. I would have loved rolling the dough into balls like playdough and rolling it in the cinnamonsugar. This would make an awesome cookie in a jar gift as it requires VERY little extra items. The cinnamon sugar can be packaged into smaller jelly jars that can be bought in supermarkets. I loved the cookies and everyone loved them. Not to sweet with the perfect snickerdoodle tang.

sorry, but this is a time saver - it makes no sense to me. Why put the dry mix in a jar? Is this a gift without eggs & butter? why not just make the cookies and put the recipe in your box? I'm sure people would love to get the cookies made, not a jar of dry nothing.

Now this is my kind of cookie!!! My daughter and I doubled the batch and I used shortening instead of butter. Also, after we had rolled into balls (but BEFORE we put them on the cookie sheets) we rolled the balls into 1/2c sugar and 1/2tsp cinnamon mix. Then, we took a glass cup and just flattened them ever so slightly. The cookies baked perfect, looked great and tasted awesome! Slightly crunchy on the outside and soft inside. The cinnamon/sugar mix really adds taste and I ate so many, I almost made myself sick! These dissapeared after two days and my boyfriend told me to next time, TRIPLE the batch!! Thanks Diane!!

I love this cookie in a jar recipe. It made the best snickerdoodle cookies and they were very easy to do. I quit baking a long time ago because of the hassle of measuring and not have the ingredients, like cream of tartar, I needed to make the cookie I wanted. Now I make several jars up and everything is handy to make a quick treat without the hassle. This one is my favorite so far.

Outstanding ... especially when I added 1 tablespoon (YES ... tablespoon!) of pure vanilla extract with the butter and eggs. YUM ... made 5 dozen ... cookies will spread slightly so leave space between them.

Excellent! Definately like the addition of the 1 tsp vanilla and then the nutmeg with the cinnamon and sugar. My husband said these were perfect! Oh, and with the crumbling and sticking to the pan, I just sprayed some Pam and had NO problems at all.

This is absolutely THE best snickerdoodle cookie recipe that I have EVER had!!!! I don't do the jar thing so I can just make them right away because they're SO good!! If you flatten them until they're like really thick pancakes, then they're perfectly crispy all over but not hard when they're done baking. I've made double batches and have them disappear in one day!! The recipe is absolutely fabulous and perfect for anyone who knows a great cookie when they taste one!

This is the best snickerdoodle recipe I've ever tried. While pregnant with my son, I used to crave snickerdoodles, and would purchase these from Starbucks with a hot chocolate. These are by far the closest recipe I've come across that is not only the same consistency, taste and texture, but also looks just like them. Too good to put in a jar - this has become the only recipe for this type of cookie in my house!
