    Chandra M's Note:

    I have tried other recipes and had my souffle fall. This one worked perfectly, I actually went and got one of my dinner party guests as soon as I took them out of the oven and said "holy cow it actually worked". They rose beautifully. So much for the berry coulis I had planned to put in the sunken middle :) I got this from Cooks Illustrated and wanted to share because it worked so well.
