Kloss's Tom and Jerry Batter
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 lb powdered sugar (about 3 3/4 cups) - divided
2 shots Rum
Separate eggs, whites in one bowl, yolks in another. Beat egg whites until stiff. Beat in cream of tartar and salt to the egg whites. Beat in half of the powdered sugar (roughly about 1 1/2 cups + 6 tblsp), pumpkin pie spice, and rum. (Note, you can leave out the rum at this step, and add it at the end to your individual cups, if you wish to make some of the mix non-alcoholic.) Next, add in the rest of the powdered sugar to the egg yolks and beat well. Fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture. Add in a couple of tablespoons to a mug or glass and fill with milk or water. Whisk or stir mixture thoroughly together.
Serve Tom & Jerry's to your preference. Some like it served hot, while others like it very cold. It is a matter of personal preference. My preference is to serve is with ice cold milk for a frothy creamy sweet drink. Garnish with additional spices if desired.
|Tom & Jerry's - a thick and frothy drink treat!|
In loving memory for the Kloss family.
