HM Flour Tortillas

I’m so excited. I had no idea this would be so easy. If I can roll out and make HM Tortillas, with this crazy vertigo head thing.. anyone can.. and everyone loved them!

HM Tortillas

Mix together:
2 cups unbleached flour
1 teaspoon Kosher or Fine Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

I store my non-hydrogenated shortening in the refrigerator (for biscuits,) so I added to my 2 cup measuring cup:

2/3 cup filtered water
and pieces of shortening to take the water level to 1 cup (1/3 cup shortening) (The cold shortening shaves off, like hard chocolate.)

I couldn’t get the camera to cooperate to show you this step..

Pour water/shortening into flour mixture. Knead 6 minutes. Cut into 8 sections. Roll each section into a ball. Roll each ball out, onto a floured surface.

Cook on a dry hot skillet for 1-2 minutes, on each side, until golden brown.
