Directions:
Cook peeled potatoes until tender in unsalted water and drain thoroughly, then put through a potato ricer or a fine wire strainer. Measure the mashed potatoes into a large bowl and add the 1-1/2 cups of flour, salt and oil; blend with a fork. Add eggs and blend thoroughly. Turn dough out on a well floured board and knead gently about 15 times.
Cut off a piece of dough and roll on a very lightly floured board into a cord 3/8 inch thick. Cut in 1-1/4 lengths. Roll each piece down the back back of a fork (tines) pushing the gnocchi away from you.
Place gnocchi on a lightly floured pan (not touching.
When all are shaped, cook by dropping about 1/3 at a time into about 3 quarts of boiling salted water. Cook for 5 minute after they return to the surface of water (stir gently if they haven't popped up in about a minute. Keep water at a slow boil.
Remove with a slotted spoon, draining well. Place in a shallow rimmed pad and mix gently with the melted butter. Keep in a warm place while you cook the remaining gnocchi. You can hold the gnocchi in a slightly warm oven 150 or lower for a long as 3 hours if will covered. Flavor is best if they don't cool after cooking.
