I've loved this dish since I was little. What's not to love about soft, buttery pillows made of farmer's cheese. So when E wasn't feeling well this week, I made her a batch, with her assistance of course.
4 oz farmers cheese
4 tbsp flour
dash of salt
Boil about 1 quart of water to rolling boil. While coming to a boil, mix the ingredients together until just coming together and consistent. Roll into rolls of about 1 inch in thickness. Place over a healthy dusting of flour, and cut into quarter inch thick pieces. They will stick together so dust with flour to prevent. Salt the boiling water. Carefully throw in the gnocchi into the water, one by one, to prevent sticking. They will be ready as soon as they float to the surface (about 1-2 minutes). Remove the ones that float up, into a mixing bowl with about 1 tbsp of butter, using a slotted spoon. Serve immediately.
