Why I Love This Recipe

My mom has made me and my sister and my dad this cookie recipe for 13 or more years because we would always make this cookie recipe on holidays, for example Thanksgiving and Christmas. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: I list the Pure Substances and Mixtures down below. After you cook the cookies and take them out and put the final touch on them they become a Heterogeneous mixture, because if I did not put the final touch on them they would be Homogeneous, since I put it on it turns them into heterogeneous. Two Physical changes are when we add the jelly to the cookie, also when you cook it the cookie goes from cold to hot. Two Chemical changes are when we cook the cookies the cookies get bigger, in other words rise, another one is when the cookies turn to a color of golden brown.
