A group of ladies have gotten together for 25 years to make Norwegian potato flatbread or lefse during the holidays.
These ladies are part of Triumphant Love Lutheran Church on Great Hills Trail and they all moved to Austin years ago from Minnesota and the Dakotas.
The recipe calls for potatoes, boiled and then riced, flour, shortening, heavy cream, salt and a pinch of sugar. The dough is mixed, chilled, then rolled into balls. Then it is rolled out with a rolling pin, which has a stocking that holds flour, and put on a lefse griddle and turned with a special stick.
The Triumphant group made 27 pounds of potatoes this year.
“We are carrying on the tradition,” said Joyce Beck.
