Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and put them in a sauce pan on a slow fire.

Stir continuously till the mixture thickens. When thick, pour into a dish or pan about 2 inches deep.

Let stand till cold and cut into almond-shaped gnocchi, pile them in a buttered fireproof dish, dot with a few pats of butter, and brown in a moderate oven.
