Whole Wheat Tortillas (Using Freshly Ground Flour)

Total Time

Prep 20 mins

From Breadbeckers, where I order my grains and bread baking supplies. After baking the tortillas, I place in a tortilla keeper, or a covered dish - which serves dual purposes. It keeps the tortillas warm and the warmth also softens them up, making them easier to roll up once filled. Cooking times are estimated, as I have not actually timed myself making these yet and the recipe does not specify. Posted for safe-keeping; made public at the request of a friend. *NOTE* Flour amounts will not be the same if using store bought all-purpose or wheat flour.
