Pairs Well With
I wanted to have cookies and make them for my recipe. Also, it brought to my attention the cookies that have the hershey kisses on them and I like peanut butter and chocolate together. This recipe is also very easy to make and uses very little ingredients. I have a peanut butter cookie recipe at home, but I like the idea of this one better. Chemistry Information: Three pure substances in my recipe are salt, (NaCl) and sugar, (C12H22O11) and baking soda (NaHCO3). Homogeneous mixtures are flour, milk, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and shortening, Hershey kisses. Heterogeneous mixture is the egg and the batter before its mixed, and the cookies when they are done baking. Physical changes is the dough being mixed and the rolling the dough into balls and coating them in sugar, and the softening of the batter when mixed. Chemical changes in my recipe is the egg in the batter when being heated, makes the batter grow. Also, the baking soda and the salt in the batter makes the batter rise when heated.
