Although tortillas are traditionally made with masa, or ground corn flour, wheat flour tortillas are just as delicious to my mind.
this recipe is great! i used more salt and substituted margerine for shortening. also, i did not use baking powder. One time i made w/ baking powder, and all the other times without... i liked the taste and texture of the tortillas without the baking powder. I rolled out the dough paper thin.. and then i placed a bowl on top and cut around the bowl... so all of my tortillas were the same perfect circles. Tortillas came out soft and tasty! They look store-bought, but taste much better! I have made them many many times and everyone always loves them. - 01 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
***FOR NON-CRUNCHY TORTILLAS, PLACE COOKED TORTILLAS IN A PLASTIC BAG. IT GETS MOISTURE BACK IN IT AND WILL MAKE THEM SOFT AND PLIABLE. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T OVER COOK THEM.*** I've made tortillas before and I would have to say that these turned out very good. I made Bacon 'n' Egg Wraps with the tortillas and my husband was amazed at the ease and speed of making such a wonderful breakfast. ***MODIFICATION*** I substituted the shortening with equal amounts of butter. Tortilla recipe would make 6 servings. ***UPDATE*** To make tortilla bowls for taco salad, I placed uncooked tortillas on top of a ball of aluminum foil. Make sure you spray the ball with PAM so it doesn't stick. Cook for 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, depending how big the tortillas are. This makes healthier non-fried bowls. - 20 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I did it! I made tortillas! Thanks for posting this recipe, I thought it was very difficult to make tortillas. I added extra tablespoon or so of shortening....till cornmeal consistency. I let the dough rest an hour. They turned out wonderful! Definitely worth it. - 05 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
