Directions:
Place potatoes in a Dutch oven or large kettle; cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Drain and place in a bowl; mash. Add sour cream, cream cheese, 4 tablespoons butter, and garlic salt; stir until smooth and the cream cheese and butter are melted.

Spread in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Melt remaining butter; drizzle over potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate or bake immediately, covered, at 350 for 40 minutes; uncover and bake 20 minutes longer.

If potatoes are made ahead and refrigerated, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking. Yield: 12 servings

Personal Notes:
I love that these are "make ahead." I usually makes these the day before I am going to serve them and it really helps with prep time and clean-up on event day!
