PW’s Creamy Mashed Potatoes recipe

Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes


  • 5 lbs. potatoes, peeled and cubed and cubed (we used Yukon Gold potatoes)
  • 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, cubed (we used salted butter)
  • 1 tsp. salt (we just salted to taste and we used kosher salt)
  • ¼ tsp. pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper and didn’t measure how much we used)


  1. Take your cubed potatoes and place them in a large pot, filling the pot up with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water up to a boil. Turn down the heat, putting a lid on the pot and letting the potatoes cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender*.
  2. Drain the potatoes (we transferred the potatoes to a large mixing bowl after draining them). Mash up the potatoes with the remaining ingredients and enjoy !

*We didn’t turn down the heat and we didn’t put a lid on the pot.

We loved the tanginess that the cream cheese gave these mashed potatoes.

Lemonade Icebox Pie


  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • ¾ cup thawed lemonade concentrate
  • 1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Yellow food coloring, optional (we didn’t use it)
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 in.)


  1. Take a large mixing bowl out and add the cream cheese and condensed milk to it, beating them together until the mixture is smooth. Now take the lemonade concentrate and beat that in. Next thing to do is fold* in the whipped topping and food coloring (if you’re using the coloring that is) and pour it into the crust. Cover the pie and stick it in the fridge until it’s set and you’re ready to eat.

*We were afraid of the whipped topping breaking by the time we were done folding it in so we just beat it in for a few seconds, just long enough for it to be mixed in.

This really did come out tasting like lemonade !
