Though this recipe was not tried for this theme, the colours and flavours make me feel comfortable sending this to Pooja of My Creative Ideas for the "Theme of the week - Valentine's day". Sure to make it again on Valentine's day.


Ingredients:
  • All purpose Flour- 2 cups
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Butter - 8 tbsp
  • Nesquik strawberry powder - 4 tbsp
  • Orange juice - 1/2 cup
  • Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1 1/2 cup

How to make it:

Mix all purpose flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Divide into half. To one part of flour, mix 4 tbsp butter, orange juice and make into a thick paste consistency. To other part of the flour, mix strawberry powder in milk and add it along with butter to the flour and make into a dough. Now roll the strawberry flavoured dough on a non sticky surface. Sprinkle some flour while rolling, if it sticks to the surface. Now spread the orange flavoured paste over the flat dough. Roll it tight and wrap in a foil or sheet and refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. After 1/2 hour, slice the roll into 1/4 inch thick. Arrange on a cookie sheet with little more gap between the cookies, as the size enlarges while baking. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done. I added orange- carrot juice and it came out tasty. Also adding orange zest improves the flavour.
