Tried again with my mums recipe as it worked well for me last time- see past posts!
Made red and white. the white are not pure white a tinge of brown but will be vanilla flavour when filled so thats ok I think. Some of the pink ones cracked, these were on a different baking sheet to all the others, one with holes in so won't use that again!
Will post pics of the filled ones when done. these are going to go to the village hall for the village sale this weekend!
