Directions:
Add boiling milk to 1 cup flour, salt and shortening. Stir until well mixed. Cool, add balance of flour and knead well into dough. Cut off pieces of dough about the size of a large egg and flatten to form a large patty and roll out very, very, thin. Bake on top of range (after cleaning the top) or if gas or electric stove use pancake griddle. Use low heat and brown lightly.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is from Grandma Percy Reisetter's recipe file. Every Christmas, Grandma would make this and cook it on the top of her "trash burner" stove in the kitchen. That stove supplemented the heat from the oil burning stove in the living room that heated the house in the winter but was also great for making the lefse. When the family came for Christmas, the lefse was carefully divided which usually meant that each person could have one or two pieces. These were spread with butter and sugar and rolled up to eat. It was a rare treat for the grandchildren. While it is possible now to buy lefse and have as much as we want, it somehow doesn't taste as good as Grandma's.
