Number of Servings: 6


    1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered length-wise
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 Tbsp heavy cream
    2 Tbsp butter
    1 Tbsp milk
    Salt and Pepper

    A potato masher


1 Put potatoes into a saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add water until potatoes are covered. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done - a fork can easily be poked through them.

2 Warm cream and melt butter, together, either in microwave or in a pan on the stove. Drain water from potatoes. Put hot potatoes into a bowl. Add cream and melted butter. Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed. Use a strong spoon to beat further, adding milk to achieve the consistency you desire. (Do not over-beat or your potatoes will get gluey.) Salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 6

*Recipe calculations are for using 2% milk in place of the heavy cream and russett potatoes instead of yukon.
