Flour Tortillas

Homemade tortillas are not only healthier, but they taste so much better!  I have tried quite a few tortilla recipes over the years.  With a little tweaking, I have finally developed a recipe that is quick to mix together and easy to roll out.  Warning, after trying these, you will never want to go back to store bought tortillas!

                            


2 cups of flour (white, wheat, or a cup of each)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 TBS refined coconut oil
3/4 cup ice cold water
In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.  With a pastry blender, fork, or with a whisk in a mixer, blend in the oil. (It will make a grainy texture.)  Add the water and knead the dough until soft and smooth (you can do this in a mixer with a dough hook).
Break the dough up into golf ball sized pieces (about 12.)
Roll the dough out with a rolling pin, from the center out (this helps to create a round tortilla.)
Cook the tortilla on a pre-heated griddle (high heat) or a pre-heated skillet (medium heat) for about 45 seconds each side.
