I chose this recipe because my grandmother make hundreds of them for every holiday. (See ingredient list for pure substances and mixtures) Another heterogeneous mixture is if you put colored sugar on the top to make the cookie have color. When the cookies heat up in the oven that is a physical change. Another physical change is when you mix together the butter and sugar. While the cookies are baking the new smell from the oven shows that there is a new chemical change happening. When the cookies turn golden brown that is another chemical change.
