Why I Love This Recipe
My husband's granma gave this too me. She used to make these everyday by hand when her children were growing up.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 C flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ C shortening*
1 ½ C warm water
*I used butter flavored shortening
Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
Cut in shortening until mixture resembles crumbs.
Slowly add water, you may not use all of it.
Mix until a dough has formed, you don’t want it to be sticky.
Roll dough into small balls, about 2 tbsp, use more if you want bigger tortillas
On a floured surface, roll out ball until it becomes thin, like a tortilla
Heat 10” skillet over low, place rolled out tortilla into pan and cook until lightly browned on each side. Enjoy!
