How do you save egg whites and only hard boil the yolks?
I have the water boiling, crack the egg and separate, leaving the yolk in the 1/2 shell. Then I lower that into the boiling water to hard cook.
It was worth it. I love this spritz-like cookie. Very delicate like the Pepperidge Farm cookies. Found in an old fund raiser cookbook.
