What to do with a dozen egg yolks?

I'm making meringue cookies next week, and will have a dozen yolks left over - any suggestions? TIA!

      That's exactly what came to mind for me as well!

        Me too! Just add fresh scones and whipped cream.... Yumm!

      1. When I make coconut macaroons, which call for 8 egg whites, I pair it with a caramel ice cream recipe I have that calls for 8 egg yolks.
        Sometimes I pair an Italian meringue sweet with pasta carbonara dinner, etc

          Care to share the caramel ice cream recipe? I'd love to have that.

        2. Mayonnaise, hollandaise, bernaise, caesar dressing...

          1. The LA Times has an online article right now about recipes that use a lot of egg yolks.
