Chapter OneOn a sunny Saturday in a neighborhood nearby, Anna and her mother prepared for a busy day at their bakery. They made the best pies, muffins, éclairs, tarts, cakes, and cookies in town. Today's special was chocolate chip cookies – Anna's favorite.
Anna and her mother put on their aprons and washed their hands. They mixed and stirred, they stirred and mixed, all that flour and sugar and butter. But the best part was stirring in the sweet chocolate chips. Anna wanted to taste it now, but she knew she had to wait.
They scooped out one dozen (that's twelve) lumps of chocolate chip cookie dough onto the baking pan. Anna counted just to make sure she had one dozen lumps of dough.
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12."
"Yes, that's one dozen." Anna confirmed.
Mother placed the cookies into the oven and set the timer for fifteen minutes.
"Watch the timer and tell me when it beeps, and don't open the oven door because the cookies might get cranky if the door is opened too soon." Mother called out.
"Cranky cookies? Who ever heard of cranky cookies?" Anna thought.
While mother helped some customers in the bakery, Anna waited and waited. She listened to the "tick, tick, tick" of the timer. She could smell the sweet chocolate and decided to take just one little peek ... just to see if they were ready.
