 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/3 c All-purpose flour
  • 2/3 c Whole wheat flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/4 c Vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 c Water; hot


In a large bowl, stir flours, salt and baking powder. With a pastry cutter

blend in shortening until resembles coarse meal. Add enough hot water to
form a stiff dough. Place dough on plastic wrap and form into a cylinder,
approximately 2 1/2 inches thick. Refrigerate at least 1/2 hour. ( dough
can be made up a day in advance). Cut dough into 12 pieces. Form each into
a ball. On floured surface, roll each ball into flat 8-inch circle. Cook on
hot ungreased griddle or skillet until lightly browned, about 30 seconds.
Turn to other side and cook 20 seconds.

Males 12.

I have made the flour tortillas without shortening and they were just fine.
I made no other adjustments to the rest of the recipe.
