Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds golden Yukon potatoes
8 tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy cream or cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Heat the heavy cream and butter in a saucepan on low. Peel your potatoes and cut into fourths. Bring to a boil in a pot with water 2 inches above the potatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. Prick with a fork to test when done. Drain in a colander. Put all potatoes back in the pot. Pour in the heated heavy cream and butter and mash with a potato masher. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
