Ingredients:  
Lefse
butter
sugar
cinnamon

Directions:
Directions:
Buy the dried Lefse bread at the Norway Store, in Norway, Illinois, or sometimes Jewel carries it.
Moisten it as directed, between damp paper towels. Meanwhile, melt about a tablespoon of butter/margarine per piece of Lefse. Brush the butter on one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle table sugar to taste (I do it pretty liberally) on the slice, then sprinkle some cinnamon on it to taste. Roll it up firmly and cut in half for ease of handling.

Then go ahead and enjoy!!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Lefse is a traditional Norwegian flatbread made from flour and potatoes. Bob's mother, Mary Benson, says that the tradition of making
this Lefse snack came from Bob's grandparents on the Benson side, who were both Norwegian. They used to give this snack to Bob and his sister
Mary when they were little children. Bob's mother learned how to make it and kept the tradition going. Bob and his sister Mary now make Lefse
for casual snacks or family gatherings.
