Do you love to make lefse, or would you like to learn how? Come and make lefse with friends and family Saturday, December 2, 9 a.m.–noon in the Fellowship Hall kitchen. You will learn the basics of lefse-making or swap tips and recipes with other experts, and you will go home with a few pieces of fresh-baked lefse that you can share with your family!
If you have lefse-making equipment (potato ricer, pastry board with pastry cloth, lefse griddle, lefse stick, rolling pin with a cloth cover, a grooved lefse rolling pin, etc.), please bring it. If you don’t, come and learn and bake anyway!
RSVP to Shanna at 303-388-4678 or by email by Thursday, November 30, and bring $5 to cover the cost of supplies.
