I'd just use two eggs; I'm a lazy cook and measurements are just suggestions.

I use the real egg product in the carton, because my hubby has to watch his cholesterol, it works great in recipes and tastes good too. It makes it very easy to measure out any amout of egg you want.

Or you could just make the extra biscuits and give them to your CD foodie friends.

Interested in how many the halved recipe made and if it is really worth cutting in half?

After I posted this thread yesterday, I thought about this, but I didn't want to drive back to the store, and was craving biscuits.

Buy small eggs and use 2, or jumbos and use one. I bake all the time in small quantities, and I just use a whole egg, even though it is more than the recipe calls for.

Don't be a slave to your measuring cups. Egg quantity is not critical, but you might need to slightly adjust other liquid to compensate. If you feel that you must follow the quantities exactly, break two eggs into a small glass jar, put the lid on, shake it up good, and use 3/4 of the contents of the jar. (Half of 3 equals 3/4 of 2.) Drink the rest, adding a little milk and sugar and vanilla if desired, or give it to your pet.

The halved recipe made 3 regular sized biscuits and 5 smaller ones.

I live alone, and gluten-free baked goods don't tend to keep as well as regular baked goods, so it worked well for me.

I would just use 2 eggs, they are not something that has to be exact. Heck you could be using large eggs, small ones or med sized. the little extra will not hurt.
