30 minutes
1 ½ pounds Yukon gold potatoes
6 ounces cream cheese
¾ cup half-and-half
Salt and pepper to taste
Roughly cube the potatoes. Add them to a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over a high heat and cook for 2025 minutes, or until tender all the way through. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.
Add the cream cheese and half-and-half, a bit at a time, and mash until creamy and the desired thickness (if the potatoes are still too thick, continue adding half-and-half until the desired consistency is reached). Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
