Yorkshire Pudding Puffs

The traditional accompaniment to roast prime rib of beef, and definitely a festive addition to the Christmas table, Yorkshire pudding is rich and luscious. If you make it in a muffin pan, everyone has their own. You can make the batter up to a day in advance and refrigerate it, tightly covered, until ready to use. Cold batter usually results in a lighter, fluffier pudding.
