    spicygrits's Note:

    Recipe for making flour tortillas from Thibeault's Table. Credit to Ann from the gardenweb internet addy as the majority of this receipe comes from her post: http:// ths.gardenweb.com/ forums/ load/recipex/ msg0611460316237.html?7 I like this easy recipe for tortillas that uses staples usually on hand. I am battling cancer and cannot eat yeast or sugar, so tortillas are a great alternative to bread!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 473.18 ml flour (you can get creative with your flour choices like whole wheat, spelt, soy, or a mixture of flours)
    • 2.46 ml salt
    • 59.14 ml vegetable shortening or 59.14 ml vegetable oil
    • 4.92 ml baking powder
    • 118.29 ml warm water (may possibly need to add more, up to 3/4 cup) or 118.29 ml milk (may possibly need to add more, up to 3/4 cup)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift the flour, salt & baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Into the dry ingredients cut in the shortening, or add oil if you are using this option, & mix with your fingertips to combine.
    3. 3
      Add the milk or water, working the liquid into the dough until a sticky ball forms.
    4. 4
      Wrap in plastic and let rest for at least 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      Divide the dough into 8-10 balls (for small tortillas) or 6-8 balls for larger ones, cover them again with the damp cloth.
    6. 6
      Lightly dust a counter or pastry board w/flour & roll out each ball of dough into a circle or oval approximately 1/4" thick. If you want nicely rounded tortillas, trim off any ragged edges & discard. Don't roll the dough out more than once or the tortillas will be tough.
    7. 7
      Heat a dry griddle or heavy skillet over high heat for 5 minutes. Cook the tortillas 30 seconds on each side or until the dough looks dry & slightly wrinkled & a few brown spots form on both surfaces. Do not over cook or they will be hard. Butter and roll up and wrap in damp tea towel to keep warm as you cook the other tortillas.
    8. 8
      (I place cooked ones wrapped in the damp towel in a low 200 oven to keep warm, while I am cooking the rest.) Serve warm.~~.

      I double this batch and make it about every 2 weeks. I use the water part and it turns out great! I have tried with milk but since water is more readily available I go with that. I also do half and half of white flour and whole wheat (I tried doing all whole wheat and it was not to my liking) I used to buy tortillas all the time and now I make them myself!

      Great recipe. I made the tortillas with canola oil instead of shortening, used water, and did 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 c. all purpose. In the future I will likely make them only with A.P. flour when using them for tacos/fajitas but for use as wraps I think the combination of wheat and A.P. flour works well. This recipe was very easy and makes delicious tortillas. I will definitely continue to use this recipe instead of purchasing tortillas at the store.
