Recipe by mollypaul

The idea with this flatbread is to use as little flour as possible and handle quickly and lightly. From the Minnesota Scandinavian chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, add salt and butter; mash.
  2. Chill.
  3. Mix baking powder with a small amount of flour and add to potatoes.
  4. Add enough flour so that the dough can be rolled very thinly on a floured board.
  5. Roll only a small portion at a time.
  6. Cut into quarters and bake on a hot (400F), lightly greased griddle, browning lightly on both sides.
