How to make it

- Put potatoes through a ricer or mash.

- Refrigerate uncovered.
- The next day add flour.
- Stir well.
- Divide into 20 pieces.
- Heat grill or pan.
- On a floured surface roll out the balls into circles as thin as possible. (Women often used wooden sticks from a window shade to transfer the lefse to the griddle. Hmmmm, I remember being spanked with one of those.)
- Cook on each side of the ungreased pan.
- Stack between towels.
- After they are cool. stack them together, fold in half and place in a large plastic bag.
- As needed, butter and sugar a circle.
- Fold in half and butter and sugar again.
- Fold once again and cut the quarter in half.
- Some people butter, sugar and then roll their lefse.
