Joan’s Yorkies

My stepmother was the most fabulous cook and shared many tips and recipes with me over the years, she had a real a commitment to getting things right and a thorough knowledge of British culinary tradition. This is her fool proof recipe for Yorkshire Pudding. Always make the batter at least one day in advance. You can purchase the dripping from most reputable butchers or make your own beef stock and reserve the cold and solid fat layer after chilling.

Yorkies freeze really well and just need a 3 minute blast in a hot oven just before serving.
