Flour Tortillas

I got this recipe from an enrichment meeting. This recipe comes from Vicki Taggert. She also taught this to the Activity Day girls. These are best right off the griddle. Add a little butter and they are heavenly. Or serve in any traditional way.

4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 cup shortening, melted
about 1 cup water (added gradually)

Mix all ingredients together, in order, one at a time. Add water gradually until you get a nice dough that is not sticky. If it starts to get sticky, stop adding water and add a little more flour back into the dough. Let rest 1/2 hour. Break off a small ball and roll in as thin as possible. Cook on a hot griddle, flipping as needed.
