FLOUR TORTILLAS

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lard or vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup warm water

Preparation

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in shortening until it is in pieces the size of small peas. Stir in water and mix well.

On a floured surface, knead dough 5 minutes. Divide into 12 round balls. Cover and let rest 30 minutes. Pat dough balls into flat round discs and, on a floured surface, roll each into a very thin 8" circle.

Bake tortillas on a hot ungreased griddle or cast iron skillet until brown spots appear, about 1 minute on each side. While cooking, punch down any air bubbles with a well-protected hand.

Wrap tortillas in a clean dish towel to keep warm or freeze-wrap in aluminum foil and reheat 15 minutes in 350 degree F oven.
