those creamy mashed potatoes


8 large baking potatoes
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 Tbs. butter (optional)


Peel potatoes and cut into chunks. Put in large pot and cover with water. Bring to boil; bring heat down to simmer. Simmer until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain. Mash well. With electric mixer, cream together cream cheese and sour cream. Beat in garlic salt and pepper. Gradually beat into mashed potatoes until smooth. Turn mixture into a greased shallow 3 to 4 quart casserole dish. Dot with butter; sprinkle lightly with paprika. Cover. May be chilled up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature. Bake, covered, in 400 degree fahrenheit oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until hot throughout.
