What can't egg beaters do?

What can eggs do that egg substitutes (like Egg Beaters) can't? we buy Egg Beaters constantly, but now we have one dozen eggs, no clue what to do with them, and several constraints on how best to use them.

the eggs have been in the fridge for about three days.
since we always have Egg Beaters on hand, omelettes would be sort of a waste. i'd really prefer to use them for the sort of things that you can't/shouldn't use Egg Beaters for.
scale-wise, recipes that allow for substantial leftovers are ideal, but anything that serves between 2 and 5 eaters may be workable.
we like cookies and cakes and that sort of thing. i am a moderately experienced (and slightly ambitious) baker but not much of a cook otherwise. Less work-intensive is better. On the sophistication spectrum... well, we certainly aren't "foodies," but we do avoid fast food joints.
we lack certain kitchen implements (such as an egg separator), but we do have a Kitchenaid...that has never once been used. i couldn't say which attachments we have.
None of my enemies are near enough to justify using the eggs as ammunition.
please refrain from suggesting anything involving beef, chicken, or pork. otherwise, be creative!
