Made this for dinner tonight but found the potatoes to be too wet (russet not available, not sure what variety I used), so ended up using about another cup of flour. They were delicious nonetheless and you could really taste the maple syrup. When I do find the right potatoes, I will make these again. I served the gnocchi with a spicy alla matriciana sauce and a mound of Parmigianino regianno!
