"Excellent recipe. Made a fraction of what was published to try it out. Picture-perfect. If you over knead this you will be working with very VERY rubbery dough. Thanks melarky!"- Pxstorm

jaimeekleppsdick 2 years agoThese were good and quick and easy but I still enjoy my Abuelas recipe better. She uses baking powder in hers along with the other ingredients. If your looking for an easy quick recipe this is it!

melarky 4 years agoWhen we make this, after adding the water, I use a fork to incorporate it and get it started, then I switch to my hands to knead it. Don't want to overwork the dough too much. Also, don't use too much flour when rolling these out, otherwise they will get too tough. I will also sometimes make these earlier in the day and then roll them out and place them in the fridge separated by wax paper, so all I have to do is heat the pan and cook them right before we eat (they are best fresh).
