Peel your potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise and then into 1/2 inch wide cuts. Place the cut potatoes into a medium saucepan and cover with cold water and 2 tbsp salt.

Cover the pan and place on high heat until the water comes to a boil, then remove the lid and decrease the heat to a simmer. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and bring the cream to a light simmer and turn off the heat. Cook the potatoes until they are tender, about 10-15 minutes, then strain.

In a smaller saucepot melt your butter then add your cream and bring it to a slight simmer and remove it from heat.

Mash the potatoes until they are as smooth as possible then add the cream, butter, and salt. Use a food mill if you have one, they are the best way to get smooth and fluffy mashed potatoes.
