Anybody done it?

Many of the Portuguese recipes for sweets and desserts I'm researching call for vast amounts of egg yolks. I'm not talking one or two, here. For instance, one cake recipes calls for 14 egg yolks, in total.

I would hate to toss the whites. But have no idea if they can be frozen.

So, if anyone knows, please share.

I once did as I had made " Saint Theresa┬┤s  Yemas " ( An egg yolk candy type pastry) eaten during Lent at  Holy Week  from Avila.

You should let the whites thaw for approx  30 to 45 minutes before using  ..

I've heard that egg whites can be frozen, but have never tried it. The other option is to practice making little meringue mushrooms and other shapes!
