Cook the potatoes completely in water. Drain and mash well with the remaining ingredients to make it smooth. On a parchment lined baking sheet, make 8 mounds and, with a small spoon, form into shells about 1 1/2 – 2 inches high and sides about 1/2 inch thick. Spray the shells lightly with a cooking spray and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 35-40 minutes until lightly browned.
