Place eggs in a small saucepan and fill with cold water, covering eggs.

Bring pot to a boil over high heat. As soon as the water comes to a boil, cover and remove from the heat.

Leave eggs in hot water, covered for 10 minutes. While the eggs cook, prepare an ice water bath.

Using a slotted spoon, remove the eggs from the pot and place in the ice water bath, to cool.

Once the eggs are cool enough to handle, remove from the ice bath and dry exterior before storing in the refrigerator for later use or peel immediately and enjoy!
