Grandma's Family Recipe Tortillas

Aunt Josie's Tortillas
My Grandma Sadie never wrote down her recipes... Her tortillas were a family staple, I miss them. This recipe is from her Aunt Josie.
3 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. shortening
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
Put flour in a bowl, add baking powder, salt and mix well. Add shortening and into flour until well mixed. Make a hole in the middle. Add milk and hot water and mix and knead until smooth. More water may be added if necessary. Dough should not stick to hands. Roll dough into balls just larger than golf balls, roll flat with rolling pin and cook on hot griddle. Flip and pick how well you want them done. Smooth on butter and enjoy!


form into ball, roll into circle (not like this weird shape I am just now noticing!)

the first couple were too puffy and oily more like bunelos -
we ate these with homemade 3-berry syrup

Finally, no oil on griddle, rolled thinner - these were good!
