Place an unpeeled potato in a saucepan, and cover it with 2 inches with cold water. Add 1 tablespoon of salt, and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, and cook for about 40 minutes. Drain the water, and peel the potato while it's still hot. Put the potato through a food mill or potato ricer and into a bowl.

Sift 1 3/4 cups of flour, 1 cup of potato starch or cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt into the bowl with the potato, and combine the ingredients with a wooden spoon. In another bowl, whisk together an egg, 3 1/2 tablespoons of sour cream or cream fraiche, and 5 tablespoons of butter, and add the mixture to the potato mixture. Mix until well combined.

Put the dough on a lightly floured surface, and knead it for 5 minutes. Cover it, and let it rest for 10 minutes. On another floured surface, roll out the dough to a little less than 1/8 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter 3 1/2 inches in diameter to cut out circles in the dough, and set them aside on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
