Sweet Walnut Potato Dumplings

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • one hour
  • 6 servings

These potato dumplings are similar to gnocchi but instead of serving them with tomato sauce or heavy cream, we’ve made a nice dessert, and we’ve topped them with crumble, crushed walnuts, and shredded some lime zest on top. You can also spice them up with some cinnamon or nutmeg.
