Lefse is a norwegian potato bread that sort of looks like a soft tortilla. You spread butter on it and brown sugar and roll it up and eat it. My mother has made this every christmas every year of my life and beyond--and she has probably eaten it every holiday season of her life. So, I thought it time for me to start learning. It requires all sorts of special baking items like a pastry board, lefse stick, lefse griddle, rolling pin with a stocking. I have never really been a pastry maker.
A good lefse is very thin, and round.
As you can see from the pictures, uhhhh, well, my first try wasn't exactly round or thin....
Pastry board and rolling pin, without its little sock.
The griddle and lefse turning stick, ready for action!
Final six. Then the electrical element died. Now, what I am going to do with all those left over balls of dough?
