Ingredients

Directions

Combine flour, salt and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.  Add warm water and oil to mixture. Stir until mixture is blended and sticks together.  If dough is too sticky, sprinkle small amounts of flour in; too dry, sprinkle with a bit of water. Knead dough lightly to form a smooth ball. Divide dough into eight equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball.  Let these rest covered or in a plastic bag for 15-20 minutes.  The dough may even be refrigerated overnight in an airtight container. Flatten each ball into a thin circle 8 to 10-inches across, using a rolling pin or your hands. Heat griddle or skillet to medium heat.  Bake each tortilla 1-1/2 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned.   

NOTE: Tortillas will have brown speckled spots.  Stack and cover to keep them warm as the remaining tortillas are baked.    

OPTIONAL:  1-1/4 cups of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour may be used for 1/2 the flour in this recipe if desired.
