Tom & Jerry Christmas Batter

I'm winding up the week with one of my family's long time Christmas recipes. As far back as I can remember Christmas....Tom & Jerry's were always a part of it. My Grandfather sat at the mixer (a big Sunbeam with the rotating bowl) every Christmas morning making these. We had friends that came each & every year to share in them. They are absolutely wonderful. You can have them with alcohol or without. My preference is without. I've included one of my Grandparent's original Tom & Jerry cups to show you. Isn't it adorable??

Tom & Jerry’s

1 dozen eggs
1 # superfine sugar
Rum & Brandy Mix
Use full electric mixer with rotating bowl.
Separate eggs and beat yolks for approximately 20 minutes on
the electric mixer. Add sugar about 1 tablespoon at a time beating
well after each addition. Make sure there are no lumps in the sugar. Beat whites separately until very stiff. Blend into the yolk mixture. Add 1 jigger of Rum & Brandy mix to flavor.
To prepare:
Place 1 shot of Rum & Brandy in a small cup. Add 1-2 tablespoons of batter and then top with a little hot water. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serving without alcohol, add 1-2 tablespoons of batter & top with hot water & nutmeg.
