  1. Place potatoes and 1 tablespoon kosher salt into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to a large bowl.
  2. Mix half-and-half and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until heated through and butter is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Blend potatoes with an electric hand mixer in the large bowl until mashed. Slowly pour 3/4 the cream-butter mixture into blended potatoes; mix on lowest speed until fully incorporated. Fold in the remaining 1/4 cream-butter mixture and sour cream. Season with 2 teaspoons kosher salt and black pepper.

I followed this recipe only I halved it for just my husband and me. He LOVED them and asked for more. They did turn out a little runnier than I like, but probably because I estimated the amoun...

Followed recipe other than halving since there's only two of us. Great recipe! Like another reviewer suggested, would just mash potatoes next time versus using beater--potatoes came out lookin...
