Norwegian Potato Lefse

6 Cups Mashed/Riced Russet Potatoes

¾ Cup Butter

1 Cup Whipping Cream

4 tsp Sugar

2-1/2 tsp Salt

3-1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

In a covered saucepan, cook potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes or until they are just tender but not mushy.  Drain well.

Put the dry, hot potatoes through a ricer into another bowl.  Add butter, cream, sugar and salt.  Mix with a potato masher until well combined.  Smooth mixture out in the bowl.  Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 8 hours or overnight.  Alternate method:  Cool to room temperature (no refrigeration).

Chill the dough several hours before adding the flour and rolling it out.
