Notes

My uncle has worked for Nestlé’s for over 20 years, and he’s in charge of some departments. He travels along the world and his wife makes the best Nestlé’s Toll House Cookies! A pure substance is the granulated sugar. The homogeneous mixtures are the uncooked batter (after it is beat) and all purpose flour. The heterogeneous mixtures are the batter before it is beat and the cookies after they are done cooking. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator is a physical change, and so is the dough being formed into balls are too. The puffing up of the cookies is a chemical change and the change in color on the bottom of the cookies as they bake is also a chemical change. Baking soda is a compound. Salt is a pure substance. Butter is a mixture. Packed brown sugar is a pure substance. Vanilla extract is a mixture, and so are eggs. The semi-sweet morsels are pure substances. Chopped nuts are pure substances.
