The Life Cycle of a Sugar Cookie
Transcript of The Life Cycle of a Sugar Cookie
You know, since I'm just a lonely sugar cookie waiting here to cool, I thought I would right a letter to you to tell you about my life since I'm bored. You know, I've never really told any one about my life, but now that I think about it, I'm made from a lot of different parts coming from a lot of different places. To start off, as you very well know because you baked me, I'm made up of flour, baking soda, salt, margarine, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. All of these things are made with different things from all around the world. Baking Soda: Raw Materials: water, rock, natural gas, nitrogen U.S.A Sodium: The sodium in baking soda comes from a factory in San Diego, U.S.A. In the factory, they get the sodium out of the rock by extracting it using machines. Sodium comes from the rock. Ammonia U.S.A The ammonia in Baking Soda comes from a factory in Texas, U.S.A. To make Ammonia, they use machines to convert natural gas into hydrogen and mix the hydrogen with nitrogen. Step One in making me is to get the raw materials that make up these ingredients. This part is all primary industry. Rock: The rock in baking soda and salt comes off the coast of California, USA. They collect it by using machines to extract it from the ocean floor. U.S.A Natural Gas: The natural gas in the baking soda comes from a drilling rig in Texas, USA. To get the oil, they drill into the earth using a drill and extract it from the earth's crust. U.S.A Nitrogen: U.S.A Nitrogen plants happen also to be in Texas. To get nitrogen, they extract nitrogen from the air using nitrogen generators.
Flour: Raw Materials: Wheat Wheat: U.S.A. The wheat in flour will come from a farm in Kansas. To get the wheat, they must grow it, and then use machines or themselves to harvest it. Margarine Raw Materials: plants, cows Plants: U.S.A The plants that are used in margarine are grown in Tennessee. To get the plant, they grow them, and then harvest them using humans or machines. Sugar: Raw materials: sugar cane Sugar Cane: Brazil The sugar cane in sugar comes from a sugar plantation in Brazil. To get the sugar cane, they grow it, and then harvest it using machines or people. Vanilla: Raw materials: vanilla bean, sugar (same as where other sugar came from), yeast Vanilla Bean: Madagascar The vanilla bean in vanilla is grown in Madagascar. To get the vanilla bean, you must grow the vanilla bean plant, and then you must pick the vanilla beans from the plant. Alcohol: U.S.A Yeast: U.S.A. Yeast that is in vanilla comes from
a yeast farm in Mississippi. To get the yeast, they grow it and use machines to harvest it. Eggs: Raw materials: Chickens Chicken: U.S.A. The chicken that lay the eggs are on a farm in Iowa. Salt: Raw materials: rock Next, we come to Step 2, processing raw materials into materials that are used to make ingredients. This part is all secondary industry. Baking Soda:
Materials:Sodium, Ammonia, CO2, Water (water doesn't need any more processing) Alcohol is made in Michigan. To make Alcohol, they have yeast break down sugar during fermentation to produce alcohol. Carbon Dioxide: U.S.A At a plant in Texas, the natural gas is burned to produce Carbon Dioxide, which is stored to send to companies. Flour: Raw Materials do not need to be processed in to anything other than flour. Flour: U.S.A At the exact same farm that the wheat came from, it will be ground down to flour using machines. Salt: Materials do not need to be processed any farther. Margarine: Materials: plant, milk (milk does not need to be processed any more) Plants oils: U.S.A. At the same commercial farm that the plants were grown, they extract the oils from them using machines. Sugar: The sugar cane does not need to be processed any more. Eggs: The chicken's do not need to be processed. Vanilla: Materials: Alcohol, Vanilla Bean
(the vanilla bean does not need to be processed any more) Now that all of the materials are together, we can go on to Step 3, processing materials into the ingredients that make me. This is also all secondary industry except for the eggs and milk. Baking Soda: U.S.A. Baking Soda is made with water, sodium, ammonia, and CO2 in Colorado. To make it, they mix sodium, ammonia, and CO2 with water. Water: U.S.A The water in baking soda come from a water cleaning plant in Colorado. The water is pumped out of a lake and is filtered. Salt: U.S.A. In California, U.S.A., at a salt factory, they extract the salt from the rock using machines. Margarine: U.S.A The margarine in me is made in Virginia with plant oils and water. To make it, they usually chill the mixture of milk and plant oils, and then machines slowly turn the mix of plant oils and milk until it becomes like butter. Dairy Farm: U.S.A. In this diary farm in South Dakota, they raise cows to get milk. Sugar: Brazil At the same plantation that the sugar cane was grown, the sugar is produced too. To produce it, they boil sugar cane until it is a syrup, and then boil it more until crystals appear. Egg: U.S.A In the same farm in Iowa, they get the egg from the chicken Vanilla: U.S.A. Vanilla is also produced in Madagascar from
the alcohol and vanilla bean. To make vanilla, they put vanilla beans in alcohol and let the alcohol extract the vanilla flavor. Now, since all of the ingredients are made, step 4 is sending the ingredients to your grocery store in Evergreen, CO. The people that sell the items are in the tertiary industry. Now we actually get to making me!!!! After you made a run to the grocery store and bought all of the ingredients I've been talking about, you'll be ready to make them. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir together 2 3/4 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Set this bowl aside. Our next step is Step 5, making a butter cookie. Next, mix 1 1/4 cup of margarine and 2 cups of sugar in another bowl until it's light and fluffy. Beat two eggs in the same bowl and then beat two teaspoons of vanilla in. After your done stirring this bowl, gradually stir in the ingredients from the other bowl until it's perfectly blended. Thirdly, roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place them on cookie sheets 2 inches apart. You can flatten them a little bit. Last but not least, bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until they are brown at the edges. Once done, let them cool for 5 minutes. That brings us to Step 6, eating them!
I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to this, but I'm sure it's going to happen soon. Sadly, there is a Step 7.
If a cookie is stale and was not eaten, then you can either throw it away, or reuse it. Disposal: It goes to the dump. Reusing it: You can use stale cookies in different way.
-you could break them up and use them as the crust for a ice cream cake
-you could break them up and put them in gorp, giving you another sweet thing than M&Ms Thanks!!!!!!!!
