Prepare sweet potato gnocchi.
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Wash the potatoes and prick them several times on all sides with a fork. Place on a parchment baking sheet.
Bake for 45-60 minutes or until tender when pierced with a knife.
You can also consider microwaving or boiling the sweet potatoes.
Let cool a bit.
Peel and puree them using a potato masher or even a blender.
In a large bowl, mix the mashed potatoes with the eggs and flour until they come together. Knead until a smooth, sticky dough forms.
Dust your hands and work surface with flour and cut out a piece of dough.
Roll into a rope 3/4 inch (2cm) thick. Cut the string into 1/2 inch (1cm) pieces. Shape each gnocchi with a fork.
Transfer the gnocchi to a floured, parchment-lined baking sheet.
Continue with the remaining dough.
Let it rest for 15-20 minutes before boiling.
Boil a large pot of water then reduce the heat to low. Add gnocchi to hot water and cook in batches. Let the gnocchi boil until they float to the surface. Let them boil on the surface for another minute and they’re done. Using a perforated spoon, remove the gnocchi and transfer them to a large plate.
