1/2 t. salt
1 c. whipping cream, whipped

Emily's mashed potato casserole
4-5 lbs of russet potatoes
1 stick of butter
1 package of cream cheese
8-12 oz of sour cream
one big block of cheddar cheese, shredded
about 1 cup of starchy potato water from potatoes
1-1.5 cups of heavy cream
1 egg beaten
1 pkg of dry ranch dressing mix
Boil the potatoes with about a tablespoon of salt. Save a cup of water before draining. Add the stick of butter and mash with a hand masher. Add softened cream cheese and mix. Add about half of the starchy water to fluff up the potatoes. Heat the sour cream and the heavy cream to keep it from making the potatoes too pasty. Slowly add in the heavy cream until you get a thick soup consistency. Add 1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix and taste. Add more salt or ranch dressing if needed/desired. Add in the beaten egg by tempering it first. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes to an hour. During the last 15 minutes add shredded cheese to the top and continue cooking.
Melt butter in top of double boiler. Add combined egg, sugar, vinegar, milk and salt. Cook over gently boiling water 2 min, stirring constantly. vAdd 2/3 of the marshmallows, sitr & beat 6-10 min til melted. Cool to room temp. Fold in whipped cream, fruit & remaining marshmallows. Refrigerate; mixture will set
