Wheat Tortillas

Submitted by: TRUELIFE

Introduction

The best wheat tortillas you will ever have! The best wheat tortillas you will ever have!
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    * 2 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour
    * ½ tsp of salt
    * 1 tsp baking powder
    * ½ cup of olive oil
    * 1 cup of hot water

Directions

Mix the flour and salt. Mix in the oil by hand until the mixture resembles small peas. Add the water slowly until you have a soft elastic ball. You may need to add a little more or less water, but do it slowly. You may not really need as much water as you think you do. Knead until smooth. Cover with a damp towel and then let rest 1-8 hours.

Make about 16 golf ball sized balls. Flatten and roll each ball into a flat round disk. Cook on a very hot cast iron skillet. No oil is necessary. Flip when bottom side is golden, the top should be bubbling slightly when ready. Use a spatula to lift the edge and check for doneness before flipping completely. Keep the cooked tortillas warm by covering with a damp towel while you continue to cook.
