  5. Then place the pan over medium-low heat until simmering. Simmer the potatoes gently for about 5 minutes, don’t let it cook vigorously because it will boil over. Then take the pan off the heat and let the cream rest for another 10 minutes until cooled a little. In the meantime generously butter a baking dish.
