DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together dry ingredients.
  • Cut in shortening.
  • Stir in two cups very hot water.
  • On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 2 minutes.
  • Place in a bowl, cover with a dish towel, and let sit for 30 minutes.
  • Knead dough and form into balls.
  • Roll them out as thin and round as possible.
  • Preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet.
  • Slather the skillet with butter -- (yes, I see other people recommend an ungreased baking surface but I like to slather mine with butter).
  • Cook tortillas one at a time, flipping when a bubble forms.
  • I then like to slather the cooked tortillas with additional butter because it makes them taste yummy.
