Here is what you will need. The use of instant potatoes makes the task a bit quicker, and perhaps easier.
Here is what you do:
- 1 lb. instant potatoes
- 2 T salt
- 1 T sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 6 cups boiling water
- 1 cup half and half
- 4 cups flour
- Mix potatoes, salt and sugar
- Mix butter and boiling water; add to the potato mixture
- Mix well and then add cream.
- Then add 4 cups of flour (gradually as needed to reach correct consistency) just before rolling.
Thanks for sharing your Minnesota – Norwegian tradition with us, Alvin, Judy and Georgina!

Lutefisk rarely passes these lips either, Paet. But if you pour enough melted butter over it, I probably will eat it! Good to hear from you.
Ah, Norwegian tortillas! (VBG)…..just kidding. I love things Scandinavian ! Well maybe not lutefisk, have some Scandinavian blood but not enough for that. God Yule!pa
