Cook potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, separate the cloves of garlic, place them in a small saucepan, cover with water and let simmer until very soft, about 15 minutes.
Drain the potatoes, put back in pan, shake over flame until dry. Set aside.
Slip the skins off the garlic and put in food processor with cream. Puree.
Transfer the potatoes to the bowl of electric mixer, and add the pureed garlic, butter, egg yolk, and pepper/ salt to taste. Beat until just smooth and serve.
