I was raised on Lefse as a special treat for the holidays. We still make it every holiday season, and this is the best recipe ever. We eat ours with butter and sugar. Note: you will need a potato ricer to prepare this recipe.
- 10 lbs potatoes, peeled
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- Cover potatoes with water and cook until tender. Run hot potatoes through a potato ricer. Place into a large bowl. Beat butter, cream, salt, and sugar into the hot riced potatoes. Let cool to room temperature.
- Stir flour into the potato mixture. Pull off pieces of the dough and form into walnut size walls. Lightly flour a pastry cloth and roll out lefse balls to 1/8 inch thickness.
- Cook on a hot (400ºF/200ºC) griddle until bubble form and each side has browned. Place on a damp towel to cool slightly and then cover with damp towel until ready to serve.
