ENORMOUS POPOVERS

1 cup sifted flour

teaspoon salt

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons melted shortening

Place greased, heavy custard cups in a hot oven (450 F.) to heat, just before starting to make popovers.
Sift flour and salt together. Combine eggs and milk and stir in the flour mixture. Add shortening and beat with a rotary egg beater until smooth (about 2 minutes). Fill the hot, greased custard cups 1/2 full and bake in a hot oven (450 degrees F.) for 20 minutes.
Then lower the heat to a moderate oven (350 F.) and bake for 40 minutes, or until popovers are firm, brown and, when tapped, sound hollow.
Serve with honey thinned with warm, melted butter and chopped nuts, if desired.

Makes 6 large popovers.

PARMESAN POPOVERS

To serve 6.

9 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup sifted flour
3 eggs
teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

Preheat oven to 425 F.
Very generously butter the bottom and sides of nine 5-ounce custard cups. Put one tablespoon of cheese in the bottom of each. Set custard cups on a baking sheet.
Beat eggs until well mixed with a rotary beater. Add the milk and the flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Beat just until smooth. Fill cups about half full.
Bake, without peeking, for 20 minutes at 425 F.; then reduce heat to 350 F. and bake an additional 20 minutes, at which time popovers should be golden and crisp to the touch.
If they are not, give them another five minutes.
