EGGS Eggs (preferably farm fresh, we use Copia Farms) - 6 each

In small pot on stove, bring water to boil. Carefully lower eggs into water, and boil for 14 minutes. Remove from water and shock in ice water for 10 minutes. Remove shells, split eggs in half, remove yolks and set aside. Rinse whites in water until clean and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, mash egg yolks and add all other ingredients, and whisk together until smooth.
Spoon or pipe (in a cake icing bag) into the whites, and set aside.
