Any thoughts on this?
Debbie, I've used egg whites in place of whole eggs, but not the other way around. Wouldn't use yolks in place of eggs. Eggs are inexpensive enough, where I wouldn't risk a recipe (particularly making a double-batch) subbing out/eliminating parts of the egg - particularly in baking. I would stick with the recipe. I think you can freeze yolks or whites for later use.
