Traditional Mashed Potatoes
Serves about 12 people.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add chopped potatoes. Cook until soft, drain in a colander and add back to pot. Beat with hand mixer adding the cream and butter as you mix. Continue beating until creamy, add salt and serve immediately.
