Kansas Mash Potatoes

5 pound Yukon Golf Potatoes, peeled and quartered

Place potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with water.  Add a little salt and bring water to a boil over medium heat.   Cook until tender but still firm.  Drain and return to stove top over low heat for a minute or two to dry the potatoes.

Add to potatoes: 
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to salt
1/4 cup soften butter.

Use a potato masher to mash until smooth.

These potatoes can be made ahead of time and kept warm in a crock pot, set on low. 
Just add 1-2 Tablespoons of additional butter before serving if it seems dry.

(Personally,....I would add some milk OR even 10% cream......then for a real treat,... scoop the mashed 'taters into a cake-icing bag; attach a large star piping tube in place. Pipe the mashed 'taters onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and slip them into a pre-heated 325'F oven for about 10-15 minutes...just until they are sorta "golden all over".....remove from tray to a slightly warmed platter and watch your guests elbow their way to the table!......lolol.......CSW)
