Pairs Well With
I chose this recipe because my family always makes chocolate chip cookies that taste great. This recipe seems to be close to my own and that is why I chose it. It's a modified version of Allrecipies “The Best Chocolate Chip cookies”
CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The brown sugar of the recipe is a heterogeneous mixture, the 2 eggs are heterogeneous mixtures, the 2 teaspoons vanilla extract is a homogeneous mixture, the three cups of flour are homogeneous, and the chocolate chips are homogeneous mixtures. The baking soda is a pure substance, the hot water is a pure substance, and the salt is a pure substance. Two physical changes are the oven heating up when it is preheating, and the ingredients being “mixed.” Two chemical changes are the cookies turning brown as the burning process starts and the new smell as all the ingredients come together to create a new substance.
