Potatoes au Gratin

Potatoes au Gratin
adapted from Pioneer Woman

4 large Russet potatoes, peeled or scrubbed
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup fat free milk
3 1/2 Tbsp. flour
3 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt and more for sprinkling potatoes
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Smear butter all over bottom and sides of a 8x8 baking dish. Slice potatoes and then cut into fourths, giving them a small sprinking of salt. In a seperate bowl wisk together cream, milk, flour, minced garlic, salt and lots of ground pepper (don't skimp, you'll regret it :) )

Place 1/3 potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/3 of cream over potatoes. Repeat two more times, ending with the cream mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 40 min. Remove foil and bake for an extra 15-20 minutes until potatoes are golden brown and bubbly. Add the grated cheese on top of potatoes and bake for 3 minutes more or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
