      OMG!!!! I think that I have bought my last package of premade tortillas ever!!! My husband loved these and so did the kids. Remember to roll them until you think that they are too thin, then they are ready to grill. I kneaded mine for about 8 minutes for anyone wanting an approximate time on kneading. I used the baking sticks by crisco and it turned out beautifully. Thanks so much for this, I am looking forward to making the next batch and buying a tortilla press to make rolling them so much easier!!!

      The first batch didn't turn out so well because I didn't knead the dough long enough. It seemed smooth so I moved on... Big mistake. For elasticity these need to be kneaded well. (it's all about the gluten...I suppose.) Or else you'll get that "raw flour" flavor some people complain about with homemade tortillas. Good recipe though.

      Couldn't find tortillas in the store today and DH wanted tacos so was so glad to see these pop up. I made sure to follow the directions exactly - even to setting the timer for kneading. The flavor was right on and tasted great - my only issue was the spring that was in the dough and that's probably my biggner skills. I rolled them out thin, but when I'd pick them up to put in the pan they'd shrink back and they ended up to thick, more like a flat bread. My shapes also left a lot to be desired, but the taste was perfect and hey - Ill get even better next time I'm sure.
