A great choice for entertaining, Duchess Potatoes are cooked potatoes that are blended with egg yolks, butter and cream, piped into a decorative shape and baked.  Serve with beef tenderloin or a pork roast for an impressive meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and add 2 tsp. salt. Boil potatoes until tender when pierced with a knife, about 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and mash with a masher or potato ricer until smooth and free of lumps. Add cream, butter, egg yolks, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Mix well.

Step 3

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Spoon potato mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe decorative swirled mounds about 2 inches in diameter and about 2 inches apart. Bake until tops are lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes.
