Making lefse is truly an art form requiring dough to be rolled super thin and then cooked on a special griddle. The basic ingredients are potatoes, flour, cream, butter, a little sugar and salt.

Lefse plays a very important role in Scandinavian tradition. No meal is complete during the holidays without a plate of buttered lefse.

Selling lefse at the Fall Festival is a tradition at Immanuel Lutheran, and the tradition continues at the Fall Festival this Saturday, with lefse being sold at 9 a.m.

In addition to lefse there are baked items to purchase as well as lunch consisting of soup, rolls and dessert beginning at 11 a.m.

Because the lefse is handmade and in limited supply, this year people are able to purchase up to six packages to allow more people to experience this delicacy.

All proceeds will go to the Wednesday night "Community Dinner." This dinner is held every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

The event is sponsored by Immanuel Lutheran Church Women & Thrivent Financial.

The church is located at 1036 E. Lincoln St. in Woodburn.
