Popovers Recipe

These are dinner rolls times ten. They're airy, eggy, and buttery, and the golden outside crust pulls away to reveal a slightly custardy interior.

Note: The accepted rule of thumb with popovers is that you must not open the oven door while they're baking. Just preheat your oven and trust that they'll come out OK.
