My notes say this recipe was gleaned from a number of sources, so I don't know who to give all the credit to. Whoever it is, I think perhaps a sainthood might be in order. Yep, this spiced cider batter is that heavenly! The use of brown sugar adds a wonderful depth and touch of molasses, and the butter adds...well, butter! And though the batter itself is non-alcoholic, I'm sure a shot of rum or good brandy added to your mug would be just fine.

    In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the brown sugar and butter until they are nearly combined. Add in the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and pulse to thoroughly mix. Place the batter in an airtight container and refrigerate it until it has slightly hardened, about 3 hours. It will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator or for a short eon in the freezer.
