This was one of my contributions to the meal when we joined friends for Thanksgiving dinner. They were delicious with a perfect creaminess. I used heavy whipping cream, and found I used more cream than recipe calls for. You'll have to be the judge of that as you beat or mash the potatoes. I also used garlic salt rather than plain salt.
