Popovers and going back in time


My Mom would make popovers for us growing up. I have tried in the past to make them and they never would get very big. I was at Target the other day and found a popover pan on clearance for $3.00. I snatched it up and have made two batches of these yummy delights. I love them right out of the oven while they are piping hot. They start to deflate when cooling. I found this recipe and love the results. I used the special pan and only got 5 out of my batch.
Cold Oven Popovers
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS
Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners. Chill muffin cups in refrigerator while mixing batter.
Break eggs into bowl and beat well. Add milk, flour and salt. Beat with a wire whisk or spoon, disregarding lumps. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each cup three quarters full.
Place popovers in cold oven. Set oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Turn oven on and bake for 30 minutes, until golden and puffed. Serve immediately. If you must hold them, pierce, and keep warm in a 170 degree F (75 degrees C) oven.

I've never tried popovers, but I would like to. And I'm so jealous of your fabulous Target bargain!
