I was raised on Lefse as a special treat for the holidays. We still make it every holiday season, and this is the best recipe ever. We eat ours with butter and sugar. Note: you will need a potato ricer to prepare this recipe.

This is a Norwegian-style lefse, that our family makes together every Christmas Eve morning. The potato dough is refrigerated overnight to make the lefse more tender. Delicious spread with butter and either white sugar or brown sugar!

A very delicious Finnish flatbread made with wheat and rye flours. Cream of rye cereal can be used in place of the rye flour if coarse ground is not available.

Crisp rye breads are traditional throughout Scandinavia because rye has a short growing season suitable to far north, and flat breads or crackers store well during long winters. Enjoy this adaptation topped with slices of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese or Finnish Lappi cheese.
