PW's Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Cookbook Recipe #23

I would recommend anyone to get the Pioneer Women Cookbooks. I got the first cookbook: The Pioneer Women Cooks last year and I have since signed up for Ree Drummond's blog and have cooked several recipes from both of her cookbooks and her website. Every recipe has been delicious including these mashed potatoes. I have made these potatoes a few times now. The cream cheese just adds a completely new element to the potatoes. You do not even need butter on these potatoes because the flavor is so good. The recipe below is a little different than the one in the cookbook in that the one in the cookbook calls to use 5 pounds of potatoes. I was only feeding 3 people so 5 pounds of potatoes would have been a stretch so below is the recipe for 4 people.

5 large baby red potatoes, skin on
3 tablespoons of butter
2 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add potatoes and cook, with the lid on, for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.

Drain water and mash potatoes with the skin on.

Add the rest of ingredients and mash until well combined and creamy.
