Martha’s Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
recipe adapted from

12 Large Eggs (room temperature)

Place eggs in a SINGLE LAYER in a large saucepan (I used my Le Creuset).  Cover them with cool water by 1 inch.  Slowly bring water to a boil over medium heat; when the water has reached a boil, cover and remove from heat.  Let sit for 12 minutes.

Transfer eggs to a colander; place under cool running water to stop the cooking.
