Directions:
Peel and cook WHITE potatoes until done, drain and mash the potatoes. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT flour. Chill well.
Work with 2 C. potatoes at a time. Add 1 C. flour to the 2 C. potatoes and mix well. Take out about a cup of mixture and chill the rest as you work with the 1st cup. Roll into balls the size of walnuts. Roll out very thin on a floured, cloth covered board. Cut to size with a pan lid.
Bake until light brown on a lightly greased griddle.
Electric griddle set at 400 degrees is best.
(This sounds like a two-man job!)

I remember watching Aunt Martha Warns Kirkeby make these. She kept them warm in the warming oven while baking up the whole recipe.
