let me not rate it just yet, becasue I think I might cook it too long.( I thought I would cook it until the color look like the store-bought tortilla. I certainly cook more than 1 mins each time. The product came out very brittle. i will try again
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup shortening
- 1⁄2 cup very warm water
Directions See How It's Made
- Place flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening, and mix until it resembles course crumbs. Add the water a little at a time, mixing with a fork until the dough pulls together. Form as many 2 in balls from the dough as you can. Cover and let rest 20 minutes.
- Preheat a dry skillet. Roll each ball out on a lightly floured surface. Cook about 30-45 seconds on each side. Keep warm by placing them in the folds of a clean dish towel. Recipe can be doubled to freeze.
