Lefse? I did not know such a thing existed or even such a word. A thin tortilla- crepe- swedish pancake type thing but made with potatoes? Eaten with hot dogs or with cinnamon and sugar? And I can make these at home?
Yes, yes, and yes. But it is actually Norwegian in origin and technically requires some pretty fancy specialized equipment (none of which I had).
The dough sounded intimidating to work with but wasn't. It rolled out easily with plenty of flour and the use of a silpat mat. And cooking them on a hot griddle was quick and clean.
A surprising success in this household. All made in 15 minutes (with exception to the dough prep and chill time (8 hours)). All eaten within 15 minutes.
This recipe represents many reasons why I love the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group: I make things I never have heard of, never would have thought possible in my kitchen, and never would have the gumption to try.
