Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from my mom who got it from my grandma. We make them usually on Christmas and also on special occasions. But there one of my family favorites. Even though the name is a little weird like ew sour cream? In a cookie? But for sure I will tell you that you can't taste it! It just gives it the right taste.CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are sugar (C12H22O11) ,baking soda(NAHCO3), and salt (NaCI).The ingredients that are homogeneous mixtures are all purpose flour, and sour cream. The heterogenous mixtures are the egg, and when you put sugar and flour together you can most certainly see the different particles in there. The physical changes are adding sour cream and the wet condiments to your batter, which is a physical change because it’s going from something completely dry to wet. Another physical change is making the dough into balls. This is a physical form because you are changing the form of the dough. Some signs of chemical changes are the cookies expanding in the oven, and the smell of the cookies when they are almost done cooking. The smell is a chemical change because when the batter is not fully cooked it does not have that predominate smell.
