Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp and mash or put through a ricer. Beat in butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. Pile potato mixture back into only 6 of the shells. Sprinkle with shredded cheese then sprinkle with paprika. Bake in a 425° oven for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are heated through. Serves 6.

One small extra hint. Sprinkle the inside of the shells with just a tiny bit of salt. Good to the last bite
