What to Do With Egg Yolks

Never Toss Out Leftover Yolks Again — Here's How to Use These Golden Globes

Many a dessert recipe — angel food cake, meringues, marshmallows, pavlova, and macarons, to name a few — requires a surplus of egg whites. 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!
