I CREATED this recipe to serve my husband and me, but it's so tasty I also prepare it for special occasions when we have dinner guests. The secret to the fluffy texture is making sure the potatoes are well drained, and heating the butter and cream before adding them. -Bessie Hulett, Shively, Kentucky
