Samantha S's Deep Dish Apple Pie modified from Betty Crocker Cookbook
Why I Love This Recipe
Every year, my family and I go apple picking, and when we come back my mom makes this amazing apple pie. It is really nice because we only get it once a year and it is special because my family can enjoy it together. It is juicy, sweet, and delicious! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: In addition to the pure substance, sugar, there are mixtures (shown below in ingredients). The thin-sliced apple pie slices are a heterogeneous mixture and so is the pie itself once it is done. Most of the ingredients are homogeneous mixtures; flour, cinnamon, allspice, and the pie crust. The apples being sliced into smaller pieces is a physical change and so is all of the dry ingredients being mixed together. The pie puffing up in the oven is an indication that a chemical change is taking place. Also, the fact that the apples turn dark brown once heated, is a clue that a chemical change has occurred.
