75+ Dessert recipes to use up extra eggs (1)

Luckily (since we're not yet into the heat of Summer) it's a perfect time to make baked desserts and other dishes using all those excess eggs. The current slightly cool temps mean baking warms the kitchen without overheating the house. So grab your egg basket and get ready for dessert!

I checked in with the best food bloggers the interwebs has to offer and found some of the most A-mazing dessert recipes and some of them use as many of 13 eggs! I told you we could use up those eggs.
