Know what this is? I'm guessing you only do if you're either a) Scandinavian-American, or b) Minnesotan. Today was lefse day! Lefse is essentially a Scandinavian potato tortilla. My father just loves the stuff, and I enjoy a piece or two (or three), usually with a good cup of coffee. In my family we usually spread it with butter and sprinkle it with sugar. I add a little cinnamon if I'm feeling extra sassy. My friend (a fellow Minnesota native) and I made 11 cups worth of riced potatoes into lefse in about 1.5 hours. That must be some sort of record.
Cookie recipe of the day:
Coconut Cookie Bon BonPaul's showing off the finished product. He always pitches in with cookies that require dipping -- I hate that part. What a good sport!
3/4 C. cold mashed potatoes -- make with water instead of milk or use instant but add less water than directed
4 C. (1 lb) powdered sugar
4 C. flaked coconut (sweetened)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Shape into balls and refrigerate at least one hour.
Melt over double boiler:
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
1 square baking chocolate, unsweetened
1/2 bar parafin wax
Dip balls in chocolate and allow to cool on waxed paper.
