I found this pie recipe a few months ago. It’s so delicious and sweet.
Chemistry Information: sugar is a pure substance. The ingredients that are heterogeneous mixtures are the dough, crushed pineapple, lemon juice. Milk and cornstarch, and also the pie crust are all homogeneous mixtures. A chemical change is when the whole entire pie turns yellow. Another chemily change is when you’re boiling the sugar, pineapple, and cornstarch, it starts bubbling and changing to a lightish yellow. A physical change would be when you put the mixture into the pan and bake it. Another physical change would be when you have to roll out the dough and place into the pan.
