Question What to do with 4 eggs?

Hi all,

I haven't been home much lately, and I just realized that there are four eggs in my fridge that are looming very close to their experation date...I hate to waste food, what sort of things (preferably a dessert) does everyone suggest that I make with them tonight? (Big thanks in advance)

If you don't have a specially made form, any deeper form should also work!

Or...Pastiera Napolitana...

You will have to get some additional eggs but will be worth it... one of our favourite cakes!!

(you can also substitue "lard" with unsalted butter!---but not margarine or shortening, though...)

I have never had this before Licia, it looks divine, I was checking out the ingredients in the recipe that you kindly provided and was unsure as to what "1 vial (1/4 cup) acqua di fiori d'arancio (not orange extract -- purchase this from an Italian deli)" is?

As well I know from trying with other recipes that candied squash (cocozzata, in Neapolitan) is very hard to come by outside of Italy, so I think that the citrus would have to be increased, or some other dried/candied fruit added. Wow, but both your suggestions look smashing! A little too over the top for tonight I think, but absoltely worth trying in Decemeber - grazie!

Oops I am sorry Jessica I think I have been here a little too long by now sometimes I forget that certain items are very hard to come by abroad!! Acqua di fiori d'arancia is an extract of Orange FLOWER, and it does have definetely different fragrance from Orange fruits. I took a quick look around the net and it seems that they CAN be found outside Italy as well, but I am afraid it is still not the most common or readily available item... here are a couple of examples...

You may want to try asking some bakery specialists near you, but also I suggest a slightly modified version, and add some rum instead (maybe about 20-30ml). That would give a very rich aromatic flavour, if it's not quite original.
And don't worry about cocozzata, we often skip them, too, they come out fine just with candied citrus/orange!! True they are both rather elaborated recipes, but I assure you they are so worth the effort... oh, so yummy and probably bring tears to the eyes of your darling!!
