  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Remove papery outside from garlic (keeping cloves together). Cut off the top third of garlic bulb; drizzle with olive oil. Wrap tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until garlic is tender. Cool for 15 minutes. Squeeze garlic into a small bowl. Mash with a fork. Set aside.
  3. Place potatoes into a large saucepan; cover with water. Add salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, for 20-22 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain.
  4. Meanwhile, cut Little Mountain into 8 cubes, about 1/2-inch each. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Place potatoes on a 17 x 12-inch baking pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the outside of potatoes dries slightly.
  6. Mash potatoes. Add the butter, egg yolks, cream, rosemary and reserved garlic; mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Line the same baking pan with parchment paper. Coat with cooking spray.
  8. Pipe or spoon potato mixture into eight 3-inch circles on prepared pan. Place Little Mountain into the center of each. Pipe or spoon potato mixture into mounds to cover.
