Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into quarters
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream 
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter 

Directions

Place the potatoes in a stockpot and fill with water to cover. Add 1 tablespoon salt and cook until the potatoes are tender, 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes with a masher (see Cook's Note). Add the cream, butter and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and mix well. Add more salt, pepper and butter to taste.

Cook's Note

Don't mash too much as you want the smashed potatoes to be chunky.
