Luxurious Mashed Potatoes

Source: Everyday Food, November 2009

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, warmed

Directions

  1. In a large pot, cover potatoes by 2 inches with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes. Drain thoroughly and pass potatoes through a ricer or food mill into pot.

  2. Over low heat, add butter and stir until melted. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until potatoes are stiff, about 1 minute. Gradually add cream, stirring constantly to combine. Using a rubber spatula, pass potatoes through a fine-mesh sieve. Season with salt and pepper.
