How to make it

  • Peel and boil potatoes. Drain and cool.
  • Put potatoes through a ricer or mash.
  • Beat in butter, cream, sugar and salt.
  • 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.

    This is a family tradition for my family at Christmas time. It is time I learned how to make it. But where can I get a Krumkake or Lefsa pan? Any ideas?
