Directions

Heat water and margarine/butter to boiling. Mix all dry ingredients (except flour) together in a very large bowl. Pour boiling water mixture into bowl and mix well. Refrigerate overnight covered with a damp cloth. Divide potato mix into 1/3's and add the 1/3 of flour to each third - mix well - knead on floured surface is advised. Cut each third into 18 pieces (9 pieces) and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using one batch at a time liberally flour the rolling cloth and rolling pin cover. I use a tablespoon of flour on a work surface while I begin rolling out the dough balls. Roll out into a circle very thin on a a well floured cloth using a floured cloth-covered rolling pin. Bake on the lefse grill at ~425 until browned on each side. A lefse turner makes this job easy. Set out cooked lefse on a damp cloth covered with another damp cloth until all done cooking. Reflour the rolling pin, cloth and pat a little flour on each ball as you go. If it sticks, scape off the dough with the edge of a metal spatula and reflour more heavily - use more flour as needed to keep from sticking. KEEP the dough CHILLED as it will help keep it from sticking. Makes 54 pieces (27 pieces) Butter the lefse - add some brown sugar, or cinnamon and sugar, or your favorite jelly, or plain or whatever roll up and enjoy.
