Prime Rib and Yorkshire Pudding has been the standard Christmas dinner at the Hendersons’ for years. We always buy a three rib roast, small end, and try to buy extra suet to ensure that there is enough fat to make the Yorkshire Puddings.

1 cup all-purpose flour
One half teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
Two eggs

30 minutes before the prime rib roast is done prepare the Yorkshire pudding. Mix all of the Yorkshire pudding ingredients with a hand beater just until smooth .
To cook Yorkshire pudding, spoon 1 tablespoon of the drippings from a prime rib roast into each of 12 muffin cups.
Heat the oven to 425°.
Put the muffin tins in the oven to get them nice and hot but it should only take one or two minutes . Spoon the Yorkshire pudding batter into each muffin cup, then return the tin to the oven .
Yorkshire puddings should rise smartly, and only take about five minutes to cook.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with prime rib.
