Potato Lefse

2 cups mashed potatoes

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon shortening

1 ½ cups flour

Add half of flour when rolling out very thin with a die cut rolling pin. Dough may be formed into a long roll then cut into pieces large enough to make a lefse to fit the size of the baking surface. Bake on both sides to a light brown on top of a hot stove, lefse plate or griddle. Use a long stick to aid in turning lefse.
