This one's been in my recipe file for years. You can use any type of potato but Yukons are one of my favorites. Recipe source unknown. Easy!

Nice, warming, creamy soup. I substituted Silk Creamer for the half and half. Worked great. Pureed with hand blender. It was easy to make and quick, except for picking watercress leaves.
