This was how they looked like - no 'feet' and cracked tops. Then I decided not to give up and tried again today but using another recipe. I was happy to get better result as shown below.
Very happy when I saw tiny 'feet' started to show when they were in the oven. Unfortunately, I was having difficulties removing them from the parchment paper. Sigh! And tasted too sweet for my liking. Anyway, at least they have those frilly feets!
