When the search for the perfect electronic cookie cookbook came up short, we decided to make one and share it with the community.

Just prop your iPad up on your kitchen counter while you toss ingredients in your mixer. And what better way to fill it than using local recipes?

Inside Smart magazine’s Cookie Cookbook, you’ll find more than 120 recipes collected from around York County.

The majority are from the finalists in the York Daily Record/Sunday News’ 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Holiday Cookie Contest. A few are tried-and-true family recipes from our staff. And we even included a handful of healthy recipes for those who are looking to satisfy their sweet tooth while watching their waistline — all recipes are well under 200 calories.

We tested the recipes out in our kitchens — look for cooking videos sprinkled throughout. And we shared Smart tips on baking, making substitutes and even mailing that we’ve collected to make sure your cookies are a hit any time of the year you decide to bake them.

And the best part? The app is free! Download it today in the iTunes Store.

    I love that you are continuing the tradition of a “seasonal” cookbook of local recipes and I love cookies! BUT is there anyway that I can get a printed copy of the book. I have Google app device which is not compatible at all. Or maybe you also provide a Google based app? Or maybe even a PDF version? The lack of options was disappointing to say the least.

    Hi Roxanne —
    Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately, because of the technology we work with right now, we just have the iPad app.
    But we will definitely take your comment into consideration and can hopefully expand upon it in the future.
    Our Cookie Book with 30 local (and tasty) cookies will be in the Dec. 11 edition of the York Daily Record and Evening Sun, so hopefully you can find some new recipes in there that you’ll like.
    Happy holidays!
