It sounds pretty darn good, I will have to try that - but do you use flour or corn? And do you toast them first or what?
Flour tortillas, for sure. No, I didn't toast them. Just warmed them in the microwave for 15 seconds, then quickly spread with the margarine or butter so it melts, topped with sugar and rolled.
See, this is my poor substitute for lefse. The Scandinavian lefse is made with mashed potatoes and a lesser amount of flour and made like a tortilla. When I was growing up, my family's favorite way of eating it was like a dessert, with the sugar. Where I live now there aren't enough Scandinavians around to be able to buy lefse, and I'm too lazy to make it, so the flour tortilla is the closest I can come with something purchased locally.
Here is one recipe for the real thing, though. http://www.sofn.com/norwegianculture/recipes/Lefse.html
