This recipe was a God send as they are a favorite of my husband but unheard of in this part of the country. I cut the recipe in half for a small dinner party. My guests enjoyed them with Kaluha Bailey's and/or brandy. This is not a "make ahead" recipe as the egg whites will disolve over time and the fluff makes the drink. Read More

Absolutely great recipe for Tom and Jerry's. As mentioned do not make ahead but this is simply wonderful for holiday parties. Very yummy and you can adjust the alcohol to taste. It even tastes good with no alcohol for any children or under 21 guests at your gathering. Read More

This was a nice after dinner treat. I cut the recipe to two servings and used an electric mixer to make the egg whites frothy. It wasn't as creamy as I would have liked (personal preference) so next time I will use cream in place of milk. Perhaps Bailey's as others suggested would also make it creamier. Thank you Verushka for sharing your recipe! Read More

My aunt made the best I have ever had and her batter lasted for days You filled a cup with batter and a shot of liquor rum whiskey whatever you wanted then put your boiling water in to fill all the way to the top and ate with a spoon until you reached the liquid with the liquor which was still at least warm yummy never could get the batter as stiff as she got it and keep as long but it was good and the kids liked it with just the boiled water added to batter when they were little Read More

My grandpa used to make this every Turkey -day and X-mas. It took literally 90 freaking minutes just to get one batch of about a dozen drinks (depending on how much liquor he added, one Turkey-day he double shot them and due to granny burning the bird, we ate KFC- I was 7)Totally worth it. As were his 75 minute Bloody Mary's for breakfast. Lost him 20 years ago. Holidays haven't been the same. God I miss him. Read More
