    Is 1 duck egg equal to 2 hen eggs do you think?

    that's what i do. you still may need a little extra flour if it is for baking.

    you are going to love cooking/baking with them!

    yep...prepare for super fluffy and light crust! so good. just feel your way. you'll know by the consistency if you need more flour. add little by little.

    i would not suggest duck eggs for scrambling, they get a weird texture, but they are really good fried, poached and boiled.

    i really like them when making pancakes especially nice and light.

    let us know how the pie comes out! i loves me some pumpkin pie![​IMG]
