especially for a garden theme party.

- Now for the truth, our secret is that we did not make these popovers from scratch. Actually, we did not even technically make popovers.
As we had many things to prepare for the party, I wanted the look of the popover but something that was
easy to make and still taste good. So I decided to try
some pre-made rolls from the grocery store. (Do I
I ended up using Pillsbury crescent rolls, probably
because I like the buttery taste. All I did was use one
triangle of the dough and point all of the corners into
the bottom of the pot, place the pots on a baking sheet and bake as directed
1 3/4 inch (4.45 cm.) clay seed pots were used to bake them in. **An important note here is to know if the pots contain lead. If you cannot find out from the clerk at the store (they can look up the content in the manufacture's web site), then you should put wax paper between the pot and your dough. Just cut small pieces and shaped them to the pot before you put the dough in.
If you use wax paper, then after the pot popovers are done, you might have to flip them over onto their tops and place them back onto the pots to continue cooking for just a minute or two longer, so that the bottoms get completely done.
Take them out of the oven, let cool, remove wax paper and serve in the individual pots.
It's a good idea to test a few of these out before a party. Vary the way you put the dough in and see what turns out best.
Larger pots can be used, they come in many sizes, but the dough will have to be increased accordingly.
I have seen clay bakeware, but nothing with a small, round shape that lent
itself to the garden look. Contact me if you find anything, please.
