    1. 1
      Put potato in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, until tender. Drain and place potatoes back in the pot over low heat and shake the pan to remove excess moisture. Peel. Put through a potato ricer and immediately add 1 tablespoons of heavy cream and add as much melted butter and salt and pepper as you feel like.
    2. 2
      Eat immediately.

      Great recipe. It's wonderful to have a measurement of cream to potato. I cooked 6 taters and used 6 tablespoons of cream and 4 or 5 of butter. Perfect result. Served with Turkey Steaks With Spinach, Pears, & Blue Cheese and Vegetarian Albanian Leek Casserole (Tave Me Presh). Thanks so much for posting.
