Directions:
Rub potatoes with oil, place in shallow baking pan. Bake at 400 for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4 inch shell; set shells aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine pulp, butter, sour cream and milk; beat until creamy. Stir in salt, pepper to taste.
Spoon into shells very carefully. Return to baking pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned. (These can be made quite fancy by putting cheese on top when baking them or a strip of pimento. If you like pimentoes, they can be added to potatoes as you are mixing them before they are baked the second time)
