  • Editor's Notes:

    This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs. Learn more about egg safety from our article, How to Make Your Eggs Safe.

    You may pasteurize your yolks and whites by heating them in separate bowls over a pan of simmering water. Stir constantly until the egg yolks or whites reach a temperature of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Adding a little sugar to each one can help prevent them from ‘scrambling’ as quickly. Proceed as directed with the recipe. Warm egg whites actually whip more quickly.
