Lefse

Lefse is a Norwegian flat bread, like a tortilla. I had never had it until I met Don about 26 years ago. This was our 2nd attempt at making it. We tripled the batch and froze some. This recipe is from Don's Aunt Inez(who is 95 and still making this) with a few additions to the directions.




Lefse

5 c riced potatoes
2 c flour
3 T milk
1 T sugar
2 T butter
1/2 t salt

Salt potatoes while cooking. When done, put the potatoes through a ricer(other recipes say mash them, which would work, too). Mix potatoes, milk, sugar, butter and salt together and cool before adding the flour. Knead for a minute or two and roll into a log. Break off pieces the size of golf balls.

Roll out 1/8 inch thin on a pastry cloth. Cook on both sides on a very hot griddle. Store between damp towels. Serve warm with butter and cinnamon and sugar if desired.
