Homemade Flour Tortillas
Yield: 24 (12)
4 cups (2 cups) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon (1/2 t.) salt
2 teaspoons (1 t.) baking powder
2 Tablespoons (1 T.) lard
1 1/2 cups (3/4 c.) water
Whisk flour, salt and baking powder together in a large bowl. Mix in the lard by hand until it reaches corn meal consistency. Add in water and mix until dough forms. Using a lightly floured surface, knead until dough becomes smooth and elastic (about 2 minutes). Divide dough into 24 (12) equal sized balls.
Head a large skillet or flat top griddle over medium-high heat. Using a tortilla press or lightly floured rolling pin, roll each tortilla into a thin, round tortilla. Place on hot griddle and cook until bubbles form. Flip tortilla over and cook until golden on both sides. Continue for all tortilla balls.
