Pumpkin Pie is very tasty and easy to make! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: Sugar, and salt are both pure substances in this recipe, pumpkin pie spice and evaporated milk are examples of homogeneous mixtures, and eggs are a heterogeneous mixture example. Of course as well as the final outcome. If you make the pie crust yourself for the pie, mushing it into a ball is an example of a physical change. Another example of a physical change is, mixing the ingredients together and creating a batter. Some clues that chemical changes are happening are, the smell of the pie cooking, and the hardening of the the pie crust (texture change). Submitted by: "Lily R"
