Flour Tortillas

Ready in 1 hour

Homemade is the best way to go! As a young wife, I found this recipe in the Custer County Home Extension Council 1989 Cookbook. This cookbook was given to me at one of my bridal showers.

"I love this recipe. Tortillas are so easy to make so I don't know why I buy them. "
