This is a holiday drink that my family enjoys in the winter. The batter makes an excellent topping for both alcoholic beverages as well as hot cocoa, eggnog, or warm milk for the kids.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 eggs, separated
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound butter, room temperature
  • 3 pounds confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Beat egg whites and salt until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites should form a sharp peak that holds its shape.
  2. 2 Beat the egg yolks to soft peaks in a separate bowl. Beat the butter and confectioners' sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and vanilla to the butter mixture; mix. Stir in the nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and the egg whites; beat until well blended. Batter can be frozen or kept in refrigerator for several weeks.
  3. 3 To make a Tom and Jerry, fill a cup of hot water with spiced rum or brandy, warm milk, hot cocoa, or eggnog and stir in 1 heaping tablespoon of batter.

  1. I first made 1/2 batch as written but found the confectioners' sugar to be very overpowering. I then added in 6 more eggs (whites and yolks as previously prepared) and another 1/2 lb of butter. Much better!!
  2. This recipe is fantastic!!! AND I have a couple tips to make it a little easier and less messy to make. The final product for this recipe is just as good if not better than the stuff you get at the grocery store, but after making it twice, I discovered a couple things that really - Read more ...
  3. THIS is what my homemade non-dairy eggnog needed! To be totally honest I cheated. I didn't want to take the time to follow the directions and I just threw all the ingredients in a blender (recipe scaled down of course). It came out tasting absolutely fabulous. Thanks for this recipe!
  4. I have never had this before. It seems like a very sweet eggnog batter to flavor hot drinks. I used the calculate button and changed it to 6 servings. 1/4 lb of powdered sugar is equal to 1 cup and 1 1/2 oz of butter is equal to 1 1/2 Tblsp. The only change I - Read more ...
  5. We loved this and made it often throughout the holidays! We made the batter just as the recipe stated than made drinks with 1 shot of both whiskey and spiced rum. Yummy! Definitely a new staple in our house!
  6. It takes a little time to separate & whip the eggs but it is well worth it! This is the best T&J batter I've every had. Awesome!!!
  7. Awesome!!! So much cheaper than the store bought kind
  8. Great recipe.... thanks so much for sharing. It is just like I remember from many cold winter days in Wisconsin.
  9. This tastes just like the stuff I drank as a kid in northern Wisconsin. Thanks so much for the recipe. I made a rookie mistake and didn't check the number of servings before I started separating eggs. Be aware, this recipe makes about six pints worth of the stuff. I'll be sending guests home with - Read more ...
  10. This is also a family recipe of mine. We put 2 TBLS with a 1/2 shot of run and a 1/2 shot of whiskey and add hot water. Stir - it's the best to warm you from the inside out. You can also make for kids without the alcohol.
