Bake the sweet potatoes for 1 hour in a preheated 350 degree oven, prior to making the gnocchi.

In a large pot of water, bring salted water to boil.

In a large mixing bowl, mix the mashed sweet potatoes, flour and egg until you have an evenly mixed dough.

Over a floured surface (or pastry mat), divide dough into 3 sections with a dough scraper, roll the dough into long "snakes" and using the dough scraper cut into 1/2 inch pieces that resemble pillows.
