Notes

My grandmother always made these cookies for my mom and her brothers, and now my mom makes them for me and my brothers. These cookies were originally inspired from “Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.” PHYSICAL CHANGES:

A physical change occurs, as butter,(in the first step) thaws out. It is changing shape slightly as it gets softer, however it is not a chemical change because it it still butter.

When all the dry ingredients (Flour, Baking soda, cinnamon and salt) are mixed together, this is a physical change, because the ingredients are changing what they look like by being mixed, but they are still individual ingredients.

CHEMICAL CHANGES:

The cookie dough has a slight smell, however as the cookies bake, the hot cinnamon smell of the cookies changes, and is a chemical change, because they are changing from the dough, to the finished cookies.

You beat that mixture into the butter, sugar and vanilla, until you have a neutral colored dough with and even consistency. This is a chemical change because, as you combine the two substances, the dry ingredients change color, going from the white of the flour, to the yellowy brown of the cookie dough.
