    Gnocchi Potato VS flour ?

    That is what I do ,as far as baking them . So I guess what you are saying , you just add flour gradually. You are not measuring flour at all , you don't say you have 2 lbs of potatoes . I start off ,with at least a 1 1/2 cups of flour start mixing. And see what feels like , add a little more .
