Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds small red boiling potatoes, skins on
8 cloves peeled garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons peeled shallots, chopped
3/4 cup warm heavy cream, or to taste
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Wash potatoes, cut in half, if small, cut in thirds for larger potatoes. Place in a pot and cover with cold water. Add garlic and shallots.

Cook uncovered until potatoes are very soft. Drain in colander with garlic and shallots. Transfer contents to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat well.

Beat in cream and butter, beating until potatoes are light and fluffy. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Potatoes may be made ahead, placed in a glass bowl and loosely covered with plastic wrap then reheated in a microwave. Without a microwave, heat in a water-bath in a 300-degree oven until hot. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
