It comes from my Great Great Grandmother, and she got it from Norway. It’s a family recipe. I chose this recipe because I love the cookies, and we haven’t made them in a long time.

Chemistry Information: The pure substance is the sugar (C12H22011). The ingredients that are homogeneous mixtures are the butter, water (water from the tap is a homogeneous mixture because it has minerals and bacteria in it that you can’t see), and flour (when using all-purpose). Also the ending batter is homogeneous, and the eggs after being separated. The heterogeneous mixtures are the cardamom and the eggs before being separated. Examples of physical changes are the mixing of the ingredients and the melting of the butter. An example of chemical changes is when cooking the batter it turns from a liquid/solid to a solid. Another example is the darkening of the cookie once baked.
