*NOTE: when a recipe requires "raw" eggs as an ingredient, there is always a concern that potentially harmful bacteria may have invaded the egg, which may cause illness in humans. Although the probability is low (1 in 20,000 eggs), the concern does exist; therefore, if you are concerned about using raw eggs, consider using an egg substitute, such as pasteurized whole eggs, egg white substitutes, or meringue powder, to reduce the potential of bacterial contamination.
