Neiman Marcus Popover w/ Strawberry Butter

Popovers are one of the prettiest, and fanciest bread dishes in the world! If you have ever had the pleasure of dining at Neiman Marcus, then you know how wonderful the popovers are when they arrive at your table.  The classic strawberry butter that is served along side, just melts on each bite of the rich popover.  They are so good, but they are even better when coming out of the oven fresh, hot, and golden brown.  This recipe looks hard to make, but they are actually quite simple.  The only thing you need to have is a popover pan or muffin tin.  Enjoy!
(For those of you who don't know what a popover is, it is a light hollow roll made with egg batter similar to Yorkshire pudding.)
Neiman Marcus Popover + Strawberry butter

From Neiman Marcus Cookbook by Kevin Garvin and John Harrison
For the strawberry butter
1 1/2 cups butter, at room temperature
1 cup good-quality strawberry preserves
For the popovers
3 1/2 cups milk
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 large eggs, at room temperature
Make the strawberry butter
1. Place the butter in the work bowl of an electric mixer and beat on high until light and fluffy. Add the preserves and beat until well combined.
2. To serve, spoon or pipe the flavored butter into 2-tablespoon ramekins or onto side plates.
Chef's note: Keep refrigerated in an airtight container.  This spread will last for two to three days.
Make the popovers
1. Preheat the over 450F

2. Place the milk in a bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until warm to the touch.  Sift the flour, salt, and baking power together in a large mixing bowl.
3. Crack the eggs into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk and beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, until foamy and pale in color. Turn down the mixer to low and add the warm milk. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes.  Turn the machine off and let the batter rest for 1 hour at room temperature.
4. Spray a popover tin generously with nonstick spray. Fill the popover cups almost to top with the batter and place the popover tin on a cookie sheet. Transfer to the over and bake 15 minutes. Turn down the oven temperature t
o 375F and bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer, or until the popover are a deep golden brown on the outside and airy on the inside.
5. Turn out the popovers and serve hot with strawberry butter.
