1 Teaspoon Butter or Blue Bonnet
4 Cloves Garlic, crushed
4 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream, divided
Powdered Creamy Potato Soup Mix
1/2 Medium Onion, pureed
2 Baked Potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 Cups Boiling Water
Salt and Pepper to taste
Spray a cookie sheet and lay the minced garlic on it. Bake on the middle rack or bottom rack of the oven on 375. Watch and don't let it burn. Just let it bake until it starts turning golden brown. In a saucepan melt tne butter and add the broken apart garlic cloves. Add the cream and bring to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes.  Keep stiring good. Don't let it stick on the bottom or it will taste scorched. In a large pot add the soup mix and then put the garlic mixture over in it and stir so it will not lump. Add the onion, potatoes, the roasted garlic and the other two cups of cream and the water. Heat on low. Salt and pepper before serving.
