    HokiesMom's Note:

    I found this in my TOH magazine. This is different from all of the other 5 recipes posted here as it does not use shortening or baking powder. It was fun making these on our own last summer and I look forward to doing it again now that I remember where the recipe was found. Hope it works out for you too.

      Nif, I don't think you did anything wrong. This recipe is missing baking powder. Most flour tortilla recipes call for at least 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. This one has none. Try it with some baking powder.

      I'm not sure what I did wrong with this but a recipe that involves anything similar to baking (flour and water!) for me is always a challenge! I'm sure that this is an amazing recipe, because all of Hokies' recipes are! I'm going to try this one again in a while! Thanks for posting HL! :)

      With two teenes in the family I prepared the double quantity. I had only one piece left!
      We had these yummies with yellow pepper sauce, avocado salsa and great chicken.
      Done for ZWT7
