We take our popovers seriously at GH, having served them to every President, royal and other A-lister who’s dined in the iconic Hearst building for over 70 years. When we found out that Harry Connick Jr. — host of his own new daytime show, Harry — loved cooking, we invited him to help us tweak this favorite to start the holiday season.

2. MIX: In blender, combine 3 lg. eggs, 1 c. milk, 3 Tbsp. melted butter, 1 c. all-purpose flour, 11/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 tsp. salt; blend until smooth. Pour about 1/3 c. batter into each custard cup, or fill popover pan cups half full.
3. ОТДЕЛКА: . Выпекать 50 мин, а затем быстро вырезать см. щель в верхней части каждого , чтобы выпустить пирог пара; выпекать 10 мин. дольше. Немедленно удалите Popovers из чашек, ослабив с лопаточкой в случае необходимости. Подавать горячим, посыпают сахаром кондитеров.
TEST KITCHEN SECRET: There’s no pumpkin in our popovers. We baked up many versions, with from 2 Tbsp. to 1/2 c. pumpkin, but they were more pudding than popover. When we whipped up the recipe with just the classic spice blend, the look and texture were spot-on and won in our blind taste test.
