The perfect recipe for valentine's day. Was just browsing the net to make some cookies for valentine's day and landed in foodnetwork . They had the perfect recipe. Sugar cookies with a love twist. The biscuits just came out perfectly. Hope you all will love it. Sending this to announcing-hearts-for-st-valentines-day event hosted by Priya.

You need:
All purpose flour              1 1/2 cup
Baking powder                 1/2 tsp
Butter                              1/2 cup
Salt a small pinch
Vanilla essence                 1/4tsp
Sugar                               1/2 cup
Egg                                  1/2 beaten with 1/2 tsp milk
Red food coluring             3-4 drops
White chocolate                60gms

Preheat the oven to 180*C.
Beat the sugar and butter till light and fluffy.  Add vanilla essence, red food colouring, salt and the beaten egg.
Mix well. Add the flour and fold it with the spoon.
Form a soft dough and wrap it with cling film. Refrigerate for an hour.
Place the dough between two plastic sheets and roll out the dough to about 1/4 of an inch .
Using a heart shape biscuit cutter cut out heart shapes and arrange it the baking tray.
Knead the rest of the dough and again roll it out  and cut out the cookies.
Bake the cut out cookies for 7-8 minutes. The biscuit should be just set and not brown.
Cool the cookies.
In a microwave bowl put the white chocolate and microwave for 20 seconds.
Put it in the pastry bag, If you dont have one, take a square plastic cover and fill with chocolate in one end of the bag. Twist the bag tightly. Cut the tip of the bag and decorate the cookies as you like.

Hi Umm, ur q'n regarding the sprouts...Wash the fenugreek seeds a couple of time and drain the water, put the wet seeds in a wet cloth and cover them and let them sit in a warm place, repeat washing and arranging in wet cloth, within 2to 3days you will see the sprouts,u can keep them for 5days in fridge, cook faster else they will decay soon..hope this helps..
