Bayli, a friend and neighbor of mine, recently reached out to me asking for lessons on how to make lefse. Her grandma was giving away a bunch of her things which included her lefse gear. Bayli's grandpa was concerned that he wouldn't get any lefse anymore so she wanted to learn how to make it and send him some for father's day.
