Never fear, I have the perfect solution for you that even the most unskilled cook should be able to make! Yes, I was referring to myself. If *I* can make these, anyone should be able to! I use a round tortilla griddle like the one by Comal seen below. She isn't beautiful anymore, and you can see where the heat is centered on the griddle, but she works like a daisy! You can also use a regular cast iron skillet, and although I haven't tried using other types of pans, you may find success in whatever frying pan you have.
Allyson's Homemade Flour Tortillas
2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
3/4 Tsp Salt
3 TBS Shortening (or Coconut Oil)
1/2 cup of warm water
Divide the dough into 12 equal balls and roll out on a floured surface until they are thin and about 8 inches diameter.
Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle to medium heat, and cook the tortilla about 45 seconds per side. Keep covered with a moist hot towel while you continue making the rest of the Tortillas.
