Roger Devine asked for a Lefse recipe! I taught Lefse Making for years,
but my very favorite of all was this one:
**STATE FAIR Winning LEFSE**
8 Cups Russet POTATOES
1/2 Cup HEAVY CREAM
8 Tbls OLEO or BUTTER
1 Tbls SALT
1 Tbls SUGAR (about)
3-1/2 Cups FLOUR* add 1 C/see below
Rice POTATOES while hot.
Add CREAM, melted BUTTER,
SALT, and SUGAR.
Cool to room temperature.
Add 1 C.* Flour to 1/2 the Potato mixture
Knead together well.
After rolling/baking 1st half,
Do the same to the saved 2nd half
Add 1* Cup of the FLOUR to it
Use remaining* FLOUR for rolling lefse.
Don't use too much FLOUR for rolling.
Roll mixture into thin pieces
Bake on Lefse Grill
**I think the "sugar" in the recipe is what makes it successful.
I seems to be the one ingredient that isn't found in a hundred other
similar lefse recipes. It rolls like a dream... As you know it isn't easy
to roll up "mashed potatoes" without having them fall apart!
If you want other Lefse recipes?? Bev in Mn
