    Velvet Mashed Potatoes Velvet Mashed Potatoes

    12 medium boiling potatoes (4 pounds), peeled and cut into large pieces
    3/4 to 1 cup milk
    1/2 package (8-ounce size) cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
    1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    Heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling in Dutch oven. Add potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cook 30 to 35 minutes or until tender; drain. Shake pan with potatoes over low heat to dry.

    Mash potatoes in large bowl until no lumps remain. Beat in milk in small amounts, beating after each addition (amount of milk needed to make potatoes smooth and fluffy depends on kind of potatoes used). Add cream cheese, margarine, salt and pepper. Beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy.

    *If using spread, use only stick that has more than 65% vegetable oil.

    Note: For the fluffiest potatoes, use a hand-held potato masher or electric mixer.

    Makes 12 servings
