I made these, for the first time about half an hour ago and they are very good. I did add some tex-mex spices
to the dough, because I find plain tortillas bland. I added 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, 1/4 tsp. chille powder and about 1/2 tsp. Fiesta Lime spice mix. I was amazed at how east this dough is to work with. The only problem I had was moving the rolled dough to the frying pan. Maybe my hands are just small:)

These turned out really good. We made steak fajitas with these tortillas and the thickness of the homemade tortillas was great with the meat! My husband said that it was his favorite thing I have ever made for him, so we will have to keep this recipe around! Thanks for posting, it was really easy!

Ok this is about the10th recipe for flour tortillas that I've tried, and I have to be honest they weren't the prettiest, but they tasted GREAT! I used cake flour cuz that's what I had and was afraid they may come out tough, but to my surprise they didn't. I have a tortilla press, but was to lazy to pull it out, but to me, rolling out the dough is the best part! I'm going to roll out circle if it's the last thing I do! :) I will make these again, with the all purpose flour, thanks for the easy and tasty recipe Charmie777.

This is one of those recipes that I have to make several batches at once... One to eat and one to feed to the fam. LOVED IT! Thanks so much! <3

I have to admit I was a little scared to try this.....I don't do very well rolling out dough, but I was brave! This turned out wonderfully. I rolled these out really thin, so thin I was scared I'd tear them moving them to the pan. They cooked quickly and turned out beautiful. Oh, and I used a pizza cutter to cut off any parts that weren't nice and round. Made for ZWT7!

Loved how easy these went together AND how good they tasted. So much better than the store bought ones we usually have. After a bit of trial and error found out it's VERY important to roll them out really thin. I had so much fun making these and will be doing them often from now on. Made for the C/S America tour for ZWT 2011

Quick and easy to make! I used whole wheat pastry flour and for the shortening I used half butter and half olive oil. They came out great! I will try experimenting with this recipe, adding herbs or cooked drained spinach for additional flavor. I really loved how easy they were to roll out. The dough when made with olive oil is soft but not sticky and rolls easily.

...OK, I tried them now with spinach and they came out great again! I used approx. 1 1/2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves. I cooked it slightly in about 3/4 c. water, then chopped the spinach and blended the spinach and cooking water in the vitamix before adding it in place of the water to the tortilla dough. It took about 1 1/4 c. pureed spinach to make the right consistency dough. Excellent; I will definitely make these again! Much better than store bought. You just have to make sure you roll them very, very thin, for the best tortillas.

Love these!! So simple to make! I used 3 cups flour, 1/2 cup 1 TBSP shortening and 1 cup of warm water, and they turned out great. I rolled them out as thin as I could. I was worried about them cracking when I rolled them up for our fajitas but they held up great! Good flavor. My husband wants me to make more for breakfast burritos this weekend! Great recipe!
