Course: Breakfast
Servings: 8 people
  • 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweet cream
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup flour (approximately-enough to roll lefse thin)
  1. Boil the peeled potatoes, mash very fine and fluffy. Add the cream, butter, sugar, and salt. Beat again until light and fluffy. Add flour just before rolling out. Roll a piece of the dough as for pie crust, rolling as thin as possible. Bake in a frying pan until light brown, flipping to cook both sides. When baked, place on a table between cloth to keep them from drying out.
