    The key for me has been to put them in very, very gently. Using a long handled spoon and going slow works well for me. 🙂

    Oh, I was so excited to try this. I followed the directions exactly, but after my eggs were well cooled, I cracked one open. Splat! All over the counter went uncooked egg. Maybe it was the thickness of the shells on the organic eggs that threw things off. Oh well, at least I only made 4 of them and not a whole dozen!
