Ingredients:  
INSTANT POTATO LEFSE

9 cups Instant Potato Flakes measured loosely (do not pound on table to level cup)
3 cups Powdered Milk
3 tablespoons Sugar
5 teaspoons Salt
3 sticks Margarine
4 1/2 c flour plus more for rolling

Directions:
Directions:
Put the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a spoon.

Heat 9 cups of water to boiling with 3 sticks of margarine until melted. Do not let boil, as this will decrease your moisture content. Pour liquid over dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon and then a mixer. Do not over mix, as it will cause the dough to become sticky.

Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan, spread out evenly, cover with a paper towel and put on the cover. If you do not have a cover for your 9 x 13 pan, you then must put a dampened paper towel over the mixture to prevent the top from forming a crust. Put in the refrigerator overnight. Divide pan into thirds. Mix one-third at a time with approximately 1 cups flour using a pastry blender. Finish with your hands and then form into a log about 2 in. in diameter. This should yield about 18 pieces. Cut the pieces and start rolling approximately 4 and refrigerate the rest. If they get too warm it becomes sticky and it will require more flour to roll and they tend to stick to the pastry board. Be sure to use a pastry cloth and a stocking on the rolling pin.

Bake on a hot lefse grill about two minutes or until bubbles and brown spots appear. Turn lefse with a lefse stick and bake on the other side. Cool between damp cloths. Once cool, fold in half or quarters and store in plastic bags. This recipe freezes well also.

To serve, spread with butter and sprinkle with brown or white sugar. Roll up and eat. Make 54 small lefse.
