Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In a large pot, cook the potatoes until tender in boiling, salted water.

  • Once cooked, drain and pass them through a ricer. Add the butter and egg yolks, and mix well. Place the potato mixture in a saucepot and add the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and cook the mixture over medium heat until a dough like consistency is formed. When cooked, remove from heat and let mixture cool.

  • To make the candied lemon peels, remove the skin from the lemons, being careful not to get the white pith. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan, and add the lemon peels. Cook until the skins are cooked and the liquid is syrupy, approximately 45 minutes.

  • For the cream sauce, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Heat a large pot of sunflower oil to 360 degrees F.

  • Place the cooled gnocchi mixture into a piping bag, and pipe out 1-inch gnocchi shapes. Toss the gnocchi's in the bread crumbs and deep fry for 2 minutes.

  • To serve, put the sauce on the base of each plate, place the gnocchi on top, and garnish with the candied lemon peel.
