What does it mean - knoephla?

From wikipedia:
"Knoephla, also spelled knephla (pronounced /?n?fl?/ in English), is a type of dumpling, commonly used in soups. The word is related to the modern German Knöpfle, meaning little knob/button. Traditional knoephla soup is a thick chicken and potato soup, almost to the point of being a stew. It is particularly common in the U.S. states of Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota, where there was significant German-Russian settlement."
