This cookie is special to my family because it has been passed down for generations and we make it for all types of holidays and family get togethers. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: When you mix together 1 ½ c confectioner’s sugar, 4-5 tbsp evaporated milk, 1 tsp almond extract it is a physical change. Another physical change is when you mix the butter, the sugar, and the eggs. A chemical change is when the cookies brown on the bottom when you put them in the oven. Another chemical change is when you open the oven door you can smell the cookies baking.
