You should get about 1/2 cup of crumbs. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the crumbs with the sugar and salt. Add the egg and crème fraîche, and whisk together well. Add the flour and blend it in with a fork; the batter will be thick. Pour the batter into a pastry bag with a straight 1-cm (1/3-inch) tip, or a thick freezer bag on which you'll snip a 1-cm (1/3-inch) opening in one corner. This can be prepared up to a day ahead; keep refrigerated. Bring water to a simmer in a wide saucepan. Squeeze the pastry bag gently over the simmering water and, using a paring knife, cut off little logs of dough so they'll fall into the simmering water as you go. Be careful not to burn yourself. As the gnocchi fall into the water, some will stick to the bottom of the pan. Nudge them gently with the knife to loosen. Cook the gnocchi for about 4 minutes; they're ready about 2 minutes after they've bobbed up to the surface. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain thoroughly in a colander. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add in the gnocchi and sauté for a few minutes, tossing the gnocchi every minute or so, until golden all over. Divide among 4 bowls, add a dollop of crème fraîche to each bowl, and grate a little fresh cinnamon on top. Serve warm. ___ Follow us!
