How to Make It
Heat oven to 400° F. In a food processor fitted with the thinnest (2-millimeter) slicing disk, slice the potatoes.
In a shallow 1½-quart baking dish, toss the potatoes, garlic, thyme, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the cream and press gently to submerge the potatoes.
Cover the dish with buttered foil, place on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes more.
