  • 2 baking potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • 1 pinch paprika, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Scrub and dry potatoes, then prick several times with a fork and place on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool slightly.

  3. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato; scoop out pulp and place in a small bowl. Beat potato flesh, butter, milk, and salt with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy. Fold cream cheese and sour cream into potatoes; spoon mixture into potato shells. Sprinkle with paprika and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
