I originally posted a recipe for lefse in 2015, but I decided to update my post this year with my great-grandma’s recipe! It’s 100% the best lefse I have ever had. Also, you may notice some older pictures mixed in with the new ones.

Ice cream has always been one of my favorite things, so of course I wanted to try it. He probably thought I would be unimpressed by anything coffee-flavored, but joke was on him, because coffee ice cream was just the gateway brew that fueled my addition.
