"I have been searching for a stone ground corn tortillas recipe forever!! The other recipes made with masa harina aren't as flavorful. The grainer the better for me. I googled and found this one. I made it tonight with my Central American Tacos, it was a big hit!! I used my tortilla press to make them and I actually made more than a dozen. I also used butter but cut it down to 2 tablespoons instead of three, worked just as good for me. They were so good I will share the recipe with all my friends and family. Thanks!!"- cooking777

Corn Tortillas (Aha) Preparation
Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add 1 1/2 T margarine. Stir in cornmeal quickly, then immediately lower heat and cover pan. Let cornmeal cook over very low heat for 5 minutes. Stir in remaining margarine and set aside to cool. Mix flour and salt. Stir in cooled cornmeal and knead, adding water or more flour if necessary to form a soft dough. Pinch off twelve pices and roll into 2-inch balls. Flatten each ball between palms or against a board, making a flat circle. Roll with rolling pin to 6-7 inches. Keep turning the circle to keep it round, and sprinkle board and pin with cornmeal as needed to prevent sticking. Cook on a hot ungreased griddle for 1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until flecked with dark spots. Line a basket or bowl with a large cloth. Stack tortillas in bowl and keep covered with cloth. They may be made up to a day in advance. Heating for a few seconds on each side makes them soft and pliable for handling again. Heat them on a griddle or directly over a medium gas flame.
