So what to do with all those gorgeously golden leftover yolks? First, if you're not using them right away, transfer the yolks to an airtight container and refrigerate. Stored this way, yolks keep fresh for up to five days. Then, take a crack (ha!) at one of these lush, egg-yolk-heavy recipes:

@pipette1110 I am with you on using leftover yolks for eggnog. This works especially well since you can age eggnog for up to a year with the right amount of booze — just in time for the holidays!
