 Welps.  I looked it up because I never make hard boiled eggs.  It depends on the size per this chart.

Egg Size Degree of Doneness Time Required
Medium Soft-cooked yolk 3 minutes
  Medium-cooked yolk 5 minutes
  Hard-cooked yolk 12  minutes
 
Large Soft-cooked yolk 4 to 5 minutes
  Medium-cooked yolk 6 minutes
  Hard-cooked yolk 17 minutes
 
Extra Large Soft-cooked yolk 5 minutes
  Medium-cooked yolk 7 to 8 minutes
  Hard-cooked yolk 19 minutes

I always add an egg to be able to test so one extra that can be cracked just to make sure

 I bring them just to a boil, remove from heat and let sit in hot water for 20-25 minutes then run under cold water until cool.

 You can put the eggs in before you even turn on the flame, a dash of salt, set the flame on high and then set a timer for 7 minutes once the eggs come to a rolling boil. LOL you guys don't make egg salad or hard boiled eggs ever?

Put the eggs in the pot with the water.  Bring to a boil.  Let boil for 2 - 3 minutes, and then turn off the heat.  Let the eggs sit in the hot water and cook for about 15 minutes.
