Step 1Place the eggs in a pot large enough to hold them in a single layer. Cover them with water.
Step 2Over high heat, bring the water to a rolling boil and cook the eggs for 1 minute.
Step 3Immediately remove from heat and set the eggs aside, 12 minutes for golden-orange yolks, 15 minutes if you want the yolks more yellow.
Step 4Cover with ice water and set aside until you're ready to either refrigerate or use them.
