A finalist in a cookie contest recalls a classic locked-in-a-bakery-overnight dream for inspiration.

Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction


Finally, I am there.  In front of the platter.  I can smell the soft scent of vanilla and brown sugar circling around and through the overpowering scent of the chocolate.  Butter, cocoa, milk.  I reach for one of the cookies, and find that they haven’t quite cooled all the way.  There is just a touch of warmth left in them.  And I know what that means.

So I begin to slowly split the cookie in half to watch the extravagant amount of chocolate chips and chunks pull apart in a satisfying melted ooze.
