I wanted to try making my own tortillas and have found various recipes online. This recipe made the best ones so far. These are so easy and I even made them into a baked chip. Don't worry about making them into a perfect circle, I only can make the circle with my round cookie cutter.
What you'll need:
3 cups flour (white or fine ground whole wheat)
6 Tbsp Butter
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
smooth cutting board
2 Silpats or parchment paper
Melt butter either in the microwave in the mixing bowl, or stove top then add to the mixing bowl.
Add all ingredients to the mixing bowl.
Mix by hand until smooth and no longer sticky. Add more flour if necessary.
Separate into eight equal balls and let set 10 minutes.
One at a time flatten each dough ball between two Silpats on the cutting board, make them as thin as possible without making holes. Try to keep them something resembling round.
Heat the skillet on medium low heat. When skillet is hot, put the flattened dough in the skillet.
Cook approximately 15-25 seconds on each side, until white with a few brown spots. Remove from skillet, and cook the next one.
