R. Naomi Dahl of Borup, Minnesota, recalls her parents making this together on an old wood-burning kitchen range. Carrying on the tradition, Naomi makes batch after batch to share with friends across the country during the holidays. Allow ample time for chilling step.

Combine all ingredients except flour; refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Add flour; mix well. Heat lefse or other griddle to 400 degrees. Form dough into long roll and cut into 12 sections. Form each section into a small ball. Roll out very thin with cloth-covered lefse or regular rolling pin on cloth-covered lefse board or other surface. Dust board with flour when turning lefse dough. Bake on ungreased griddle until brown spots appear. Turn and bake other side. Stack lefse between 2 towels to cool. Store in refrigerator in plastic bags. Can be frozen.
