Egg Yolk Replacer Help needed

There's nothing in the memories about replacing yolks so I thought I would bring what I've learned.

Ener-G egg replacer alone doesn't have enough fat for the yolk.
1 large egg has 2 Tablespoons egg white and 1 Tablesppon yolk.

For the following recipe I am going to try this:
2Tbl. Lemon juice
2 Tbl. Flour
1/2 Tbl. Earth Balance
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
Use 1 Tablespoon of this mixture.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 T grated lemon peel
1 egg yolk
1 tsp lemon extract
1/4 tsp salt
2-1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter; gradually add sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in lemon peel, egg yolk, lemon extract and salt. Add flour and stir just until blended. Roll into balls. Place 3" apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Dip bottom of a glass into sugar. Press down onto dough, flattening into 1/4" thick rounds. Bake until edges begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks and cool. Sift powdered sugar over tops.

Really the yolk doesn't seem super important, but it got me thinking about how to replace egg yolks.

Anyone have any experience with this?
