Egg Yolk Cookies

I try not to be wasteful when it comes to food. So when I made my macarons I didn't want to just throw out the 5 egg yolks that were leftover. While researching the correct way to make macarons last year, I came across a Q&A on Food Nouveau that included some ideas for using up the yolks. I decided to keep it simple and make Egg Yolk Cookies from

Chocolate Macarons with Caramel Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting

When I made the Fireworks Cookies & Cream Cookies for work I had a ton of eggs leftover plus 4 oz. of cream cheese. So I decided to try making macarons again using the same method that I had used last time. For the cream cheese the only solution I could come up with was cream cheese frosting to I started looking at every cream cheese frosting recipe on my Pinterest Frostings board until I found one on Wicked Good Kitchen that only required 4 oz. of cream cheese (and for once, I stayed with the first one I found instead of saving it for consideration). Because it was a caramel frosting I decided to make chocolate macarons since caramel is one of the many things that goes deliciously with chocolate. I finally decided on a chocolate macaron recipe from Diethood.
