Aunt Carol’s Lefsa

Norwegian lefse is probably one of those food items that has many variations and whichever one you grew up eating is the “right” recipe. Other recipes just don’t taste quite like you expect. My Aunt Carol toiled for days to make her holiday feasts and her lefse was the centerpiece that knit every other item together. This is her recipe, cut down for everyday use.
