Pairs Well With
I chose this recipe because my family always has these cookies. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: A pure substance is sugar (C12H22O11). A homogeneous mixture is the vanilla. After the cookies are baked, iced and decorated, they are heterogeneous mixtures. A physical change happens when the eggs are beaten, and the cookies rising and crisping up in the oven are signs of chemical changes.
