    16. IMPORTANT: to reheat and serve, warm them up in a dry skillet on medium-high heat. It will soften them. Otherwise, they will be very brittle and won’t roll up well.

Notes

Some tips:

  1. Your potatoes have to be either riced or pureed, there can be NO lumps. I do not have a ricer, so I pureed them in myfood processor.
  2. You really need some of the special Lefse making equipment. Namely: the griddle, the lefse stick, and the lefse mat. These assure that your lefse is made to perfection!HEREis a kit that has everything needed.

    1. I am not sure that subbing coconut oil will work, but it’s worth a try. The coconut cream should do okay. Let me know how it turns out!
