A question about a recipe: Tiramisu Cupcake

I have a question about the recipe "Tiramisu Cupcake" from Oh Sweet Day!. what do you mean by "3 pieces whole eggs" and "3 pieces egg yolks"? What is a 'piece' of an egg?

Hi! Just 3 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks! It was when I thought we had to put an unit before we move forward.

The way recipes work on this site, there's an option for a "unit" after you enter the quantity. If the options listed (cup, teaspoon, gram, piece, etc.) aren't appropriate for the ingredient, there's an option to leave it blank but its not very clear. It's easy to think that picking an option is necessary in order to continue.

I am guessing she means 3 eggs and 3 egg yolks - with piece being the unit of measurement rather than cups or ounces or some other measurement. It is not a piece of an egg, but 3 eggs.

Thanks bunches C Sangueza, that definitely makes more sense. Hubby will be so happy to come home to these babies! Happy baking! :)
