Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Now this recipe is a decadent sin... :)

4-6 russet potatoes, peeled or unpeeled
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup garlic cloves peeled
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Rinse potatoes under cold water; cut into quarters. Place potatoes in large pot. Add enough cold water to cover potatoes; add 1 tablespoon salt. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat and boil until potatoes are tender when poked with thin paring knife; drain. Let potatoes stand uncovered 3 to 5 minutes, allowing liquid to steam off. Add butter, cream, garlic, parsley and remaining 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Mash until creamy.
