My family loves these tortillas. It's easy and quick to prepare. How tricky part was how to judge 'when each is done.' I found out to only cook it for about 30 secs to 1 min on each side...just enough so their not doughy. Thanks for the recipe.

These are very very easy and very good. I did change a bit though. First I used 1/2 Whole Wheat Flour and 1/2 Unbleached Flour. Next I used 1/2 the salt only 1 tsp. Then ditched the shortening and used coconut oil for a healthy boost. I used my hottest tap water for the warm water and it worked perfect. Oh, and it is easy to double the recipe too.
