Flour Tortillas

When making this recipe be sure to knead them well till smooth, don’t let them dry out, and do not use oil to cook them as possible the oil will make them crispy and stiff, rather than the soft you want them to be.

4 cups Flour
1 Tbls salt
pinch of baking powder
2 heaping Tbls shortening
1 1/2 cups hot water

Mix together well, knead until smooth. Divide into 2 inch diameter balls, and place in a covered greased bowl. Roll out thin ( the thinner the better) on a floured table and cook on medium heat in an ungreased pan.  They only take a minute or so on each side to cook.
