total time

Ingredients

4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (medium peeled and halved)

Kosher salt

6 sticks unsalted butter (1 1/2 pounds cold, cut into 1/2-inch cubes)

½ cup heavy cream

Directions

Gather the ingredients.

In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of salt and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Drain well and let stand in a colander for 3 minutes.

Pass the potatoes through a ricer into the large saucepan.

Cook over moderate heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the potatoes are hot and steam starts to rise, about 2 minutes; they’ll start to stick to the bottom of the pan.

Add one-fourth of the butter cubes at a time, stirring constantly until incorporated. Stir in the heavy cream and season generously with salt. Serve right away.
