Pioneer Woman Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes (may easily be halved)

5 pounds russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and rinsed.
1 1/2 sticks regular (salted) butter (1 1/2 sticks is the same as 3/4 cup)
1 package softened cream cheese
1/2 (give or take) Half & Half (or heavy cream if you're feeling naughty)
Black pepper

Cut the peeled potatoes into pieces and cook in boiling water until fork-tender. Drain water and return to pot, and mash potatoes over low heat until lots of the steam has escaped. Next, mash in softened butter, cream cheese, Half & Half, and salt to taste. Dump in three to five heads of roasted garlic cloves; stir together, then check seasoning. Be sure to salt adequately. Add some fresh ground black pepper, and serve with one or two roasted garlic cloves on top. Serve with steak and expect to be worshipped and kissed for at least 38 hours.
