    I scaled this down to four servings, and used jumbo muffin tins and got two popovers. The directions were spot on easy and don't let the thin batter fool you, they will pop up and over quite nicely. The taste is great and similar to crescent rolls in that they are very light and airy. Great recipe Sharon, thanks for posting. :)
