- 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cinnamon stick
1 package storebought gnocchi
1 tablespoon sugar, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Melt the butter with the cinnamon stick in a heavy medium skillet over medium heat until melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Cook the gnocchi in a large pot of boiling salted water until all the gnocchi rise to the surface, about 3 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick from the butter sauce, and reheat the sauce over low heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked gnocchi to the hot cinnamon butter in the skillet. Sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon. Toss to coat, and add more sugar to taste.
- Spoon the gnocchi and butter sauce into shallow bowls and serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6.
