There's just something about
the aroma of homemade tortillas!
It gets your tummy's rumbling!
The whole kitchen just comes to life
when a mama is creating and exploring new recipes.
I love homemade flour tortillas!
It's one of those recipes that I have had for years
and when I have the time, I make up a whole
bunch and store them in the freezer
for future meals and snacks!
I hope you give them a try
(You might even never buy store bought one's again)
Homemade Flour Tortillas
2 cups Flour
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Lard or Shortening
1 cup Water
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Cut in the lard or shortening, until pea size crumbles form.
Add in the water about a 1/4 cup at a time.
Stir well, until moistened.
Knead the dough until a firm dough is formed.
Now form into small balls and flatten
into a circle with a rolling pin.
Grill on an non-greased frying pan
or cast iron skillet until browned.
This recipe will make about 10 small tortillas.
These taste wonderful with melted butter
and sprinkled with some cinnamon sugar!
Have a wonderful day!
