Duchess Potatoes

Although they might sound fussy to fix, these spuds are really a cinch from start to finish, according to the CT kitchen staff. All you need to do is mash the potatoes, pipe the mixture into fun designs using cake-decorating tools, then bake.

    I couldn't believe how easy these were! And so versatile...I added some minced garlic and a little cheese and they were yummy and beautiful! It made so many that I froze the extra rosettes for another time. My husband was very impressed :)
