1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
4 1/2 teaspoons shortening
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
In a mixing bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in the strawberries. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Using 1/2 teaspoon shortening for each cup, grease the bottoms and sides of nine popover cups. In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs; beat in milk. Add the flour, sugar and salt; beat until smooth (do not overbeat). Fill prepared cups half full.
Bake at 450 F. for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F.; bake 15 minutes longer or until very firm. Immediately cut a slit in the top of each popover to allow steam to escape. Spoon strawberry filling into popovers. Serve immediately. Yield: 9 servings.

These tender popovers "pop up" nicely in the oven and hold a delicate cream filling dotted with fresh chopped strawberries. If you do not have a popover pan on hand, you might try muffin cups.
