  • Bring to a boil and cook on high for 5 minutes.
  • Scrape vanilla bean and either purée the mixture with a mixing wand or mash well with a potato masher.
  • When the potatoes are tender, drain well and add to the cream mixture.
  • Cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes and mash gently with a spoon leaving some chunks of potato.
  • The mixture will thicken slightly as the potatoes absorb the cream.
  • Stir in the bourbon and the soft butter.
