Mashed Sweet Potatoes

"Oh sweet mystery of life now I have found you" what I was singing when I shoved a spoonful of this creamy dreaminess in my mouth.  Probably one of my favorite side dishes ever.  I happen to love sweet spuds, but these were plum fantastic!

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered lengthwise, and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch-thick (about 2 large or 3 medium-small potatoes)
salt & freshly ground black pepper

Combine butter, cream, salt, sugar, and sweet potatoes in large saucepan.  Cook, covered, over low heat, stirring occasionally, until potatoes fall apart when poked with fork. This will take between 30 to 45 minutes.
Take off heat and mash sweet potatoes in saucepan with potato masher. You can also put potatoes into a Bosch or Kitchen Aid mixer and mix. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.  (I didn't add any at the end.)

Serves:  4
