Why do you use a pressure cooker?

As a matter of fact people who live on the mountains use to make dumplings with castagne,you have to boil them in a saucepan,then you peel off the skin and make a mousse with them,this filling is added afterwards to flour plus two 1 egg egg yolks,some potato mousse(boil the potato and make a smooth cream),in order to assemble all the ingredients.
The suitable dressing sauce might be: fresh cream or fried warm butter with cinnamom powder or vanilla powder,a spoonful of sugar cane;the dressing is to be poured on warm castagne dumplings.
I am sorry but I am not able to suggest the properest wine to accompany this peculiar dish.

How do you translate castagne in Usa? I don't know...

Enjoy it!!
Ps: let me hear if my recipe was tasty...
