“I got this recipe from Taste of Homes 2001 Holiday edition and they easily became our favorite! Time does not include the doubling since it can vary. Mashed potatoes can be made ahead to save time. Although I've seen similar recipes here, this one has varied amounts of ingredients and no chilling time.”
