Powdered Egg White?

I see that the recipe for the gorgeous-looking eclairs uses powdered egg white. Can I just use ordinary egg white? What is the reason for powdered egg white?

Hi Sheena

As the dough mix is flour and gluten free, and eclair pastry is supposed to be quite rubbery, I imagine you need the extra 'glue' provided by the dried egg white without the added liquid that would come from using fresh egg whites. But I might be wrong! Let me know what happens if you try it!
