5 small purple potatoes
about 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2) While potatoes are still warm, peel and mash the potatoes in a ricer.
3) Chill mashed potato in refrigerator for about 2-4 hours or overnight.
4) Use a dough hook and a dough mixer in low-medium setting to incorporate mashed potato, add
a tablespoon of flour at a time.
5) Add more flour until the dough is not sticky but come together when touched.
6) Take a small amount of dough out and roll on a floured board.
7) Cover the rest of the dough you are not using to prevent drying out.
8) Roll the dough with your palm gently into a long rope, with the diameter the size of your fingers. 
9) Cut each log about 1-inch length.
10) Drop these gnocchi logs in gently boiling salted water.
11) When the gnocchi float to the top scoop them out onto a plate.
