DIRECTIONS

  • 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.

“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.”
