Naomi G’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Modified from Allrecipes.com
Why I Love This Recipe
Recipe Backstory: My Mother always made these cookies when I was younger and they were the bomb or the best. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are baking soda (NaHCO3), salt (NaCl), and sugar (C12H22O11). The ingredients that are homogeneous mixtures are all-purpose flour, the Butter, and the vanilla. The heterogeneous mixtures are the egg, Oatmeal, Brown sugar, and the batter after it has been mixed. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator, the shaping of the dough into balls and the melting of the chocolate chips are all physical changes. The puffing up of the cookies and the change in color on the bottom of the cookies as they bake both indicate that chemical changes are taking place.
