I've found a few on the net, but I'd really like to know if anyone here has a really good recipe for these. I'd like to give them as gifts this year.

I have tried this recipe and it's really good.  I didn't give it as a gift, I just made it for myself.

Snickerdoodle in a Jar

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and sugar. Stir with a whisk, then place into a one quart canning jar.
  2. Attach a tag with the following recipe to the jar: Snickerdoodles 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 2. In a large bowl, cream 1 cup of butter and 2 eggs. Pour in the snickerdoodle mix, and stir until a dough forms. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. 3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be light brown. Cool on wire racks.

Here's a real nice recipe book.  http://www.amazon.com/Gifts-Jar-Cookies/dp/156383121X/ref=sr_1_1/103-3303346-0904627?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1189442896&sr=1-1 It even includes the cut-out packaging instructions. I don't see any on PBS right now. Too bad.
