3/4 cup equals 4 whites.

Make custard based ice-cream with your yolks.  You'll never want to buy it again.

I too got tired of wasting the yolks although many say that you can freeze them but I really never had luck with it.  I purchase qts of egg whites from Restaurant Depot but if you aren't licensed you can not belong unfortunately.  Wal Mart sells them and they are fairly reasonable. I use them for cakes, meringue icings as well as meringue cookies and pie meringue.

 

Good luck!

The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Berenbaum  has a fabulous recipe for neoclassic buttercream, which is basically like IMBC, but it  uses egg yolks instead of the whites and it tastes wonderful!  I use alot of my yolks to make this - it freezes great and can be flavored just about any flavor you like.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

My family's doboshtorte recipe is going to be my December contribution to the Best Friends for Frosting blog.   It uses a ton of yolks!  And is insanely rich and delicious.  I'm not sure which day they're going to post it, but it was styled as a New year's post, so really, any time now.

I believe somewhere on this site there is a recipe for 12 yolk cookies :)  If not, I know it is on the internet somewhere as I have posted it in the past.

Feed them to the dog &/or cat

Yup...my dogs get mine too :)  

 

I think it's probably still cheaper to separate the yolks from the whites and throw them out...than to buy a carton of egg whites....isn't it?

My yellow cake recipe (shirley corriher's recipe) calls for extra yolks. Everyone wants that and never white cake. Maybe we could trade whites for yolks! icon_smile.gif
