Tip

A great way to use up those yolks! Alternatively, you could use 3 whole eggs.

If you are not a fan of citrus, you could always add nuts or chocolate chips in lieu.

    Great recipe for leftover egg yolks. I used up 6 egg yolks, 190g sugar, added in choc chips and didn’t use the butterfly to cream butter and sugar. Cookies turned out great! Will definitely make again.

    Couple times a year I do Pavs & SMBC so this recipe comes in handy and fills up the school lunch boxes!
    I change it up with whatever suits. If I don’t have enough egg yolks I throw in a whole egg, I replace the sugar with rice malt syrup, add a bit of extra flour (they don’t spread as much with the lack of sugar) then portion out with a small 4cm ‘cookie/ice cream’ scoop. Bake as is.
    Love these so much!!

    I’m thinking next time I’ll do lemon curd centres (Jam drops) to bowl over a good 7 egg yolks! 😍

    Best way to use up egg yolks. Delicious, fluffy and light cookies. I added some chopped up peanuts. I originally wanted to add chopped up easter eggs but they seem to have hone missing. I would use this recipe again if i had egg yolks to use up tmrc_emoticons.)

    Nice biscuits. I used frozen egg yolks, just defrosted prior. Would maybe add more than 1 lemons zest next time to increase the lemon hit.
    Thanks for posting.

    Like the other comments, great use of egg yolks from Australia Day Pavlova!!! Used Rapadura Sugar (reduced to 160gm & might reduce further next time) then increased flour to 400gm (using 100gm Wholemeal & 300gm Plain) omitted Lemon, then decorated with Choc Chips, Dried Fruit & Cinnamon - Great result for back to school baking - Thanks!!!
