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.


2 cups Flour
2 1/2 teaspoons Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Water; lukewarm
1 tablespoon Shortening

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Stir all ingredients together except shortening. Knead in shortening. Divide dough into 8 parts and roll thin on a floured board. Fry on a hot dry skillet 15-20 seconds on each side.


For wheat tortillas change flour to 1 cup white flour and 1 cup wheat pastry flour.

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