OK, for several years we tried to make the right lefse that rolled out wonderfully and tasted as good as Grandma's. This is finally perfection for our family.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake potatoes in the oven, allow to cool enough to scoop from the skins.
  2. Rice potatoes twice.
  3. Add butter, cream, sugar and flour.
  4. Mix together all ingredients with hands.
  5. Shape mixture into egg or small softball size balls.
