    Scandinavian Lefse

    Ingredients
    15 pounds of russet potatoes
    2 cups heavy cream
    2 cups unsalted butter
    4 tablespoons sugar
    4 tablespoons salt
    9 cups of all purpose flour
    Friends to give this stuff away to so you don’t have to eat it all

    Method

    Peel and cube the potatoes

    Cover potatoes with water in a large stockpot and boil for 8-12 minutes until fork tender

    Allow potatoes to cool to room temperature in an even layer allowing as much evaporation of moisture as possible

    Rice the potatoes

    Combine the riced potatoes with the cream, butter, sugar, and salt

    Rest in the fridge overnight

    Add 9 cups of flour and mix well

    Rest dough to allow flour to absorb moisture

    Form 150 g balls of dough and place on baking sheets

    Roll each ball out to 14“ on a pastry board

    Grill each side

    Place each round between damp kitchen towels and allow to cool

    Place in plastic bags

    This is one of my favorite things to make around the holidays.

      Having grown up on a potato farm all I can say about flaked potatoes is: uffdah. 😂

    Nice! One of my fondest memories is coming downstairs at about 2 AM to find my wife, her 96 year old mother, and our daughter in the kitchen making piles of lefse and krumkake. They were laughing and enjoying themselves so much I just turned around and went back up without disturbing them.
