The mashed potatoes must be stiff in order to hold their shape. Be sure to thoroughly seed the tomatoes, so they don't add too much moisture.


Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Boil potatoes in a large pot of salted water until fork-tender, 1520 minutes. Drain potatoes well, then mash until smooth.

Stir in cream, butter, and egg yolks just to incorporate; fold in tomatoes and salt. Transfer potatoes to a pastry bag fitted with a 1½-inch star tip.

Pipe six mounds of potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake potatoes until tops are lightly browned, 15 minutes; serve immediately.
