My family LOVES these. They are gone the minute they come off the griddle! Just can't make them fast enough!

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Griddle

Ingredients

2 c
unbleached white flour
2 c
wheat flour
2 tsp
salt
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 c
powdered milk
8 Tbsp
crisco
1 1/2 c
warm water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add Crisco and work in with a pastry blender or your hands until mixture resembles small pebbles.
2
Add warm water a little at a time and work dough with your hands until all water is incorporated and dough is no longer sticky.
3
Knead 15-20 times. Cover and allow dough to rest for about 10 minutes.
4
Form dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Roll them out until thin, about 6 inches in diameter.
5
Cook on griddle over medium heat, a few minutes on each side until brown-black spots appear. (Time will vary with your range and the griddle used.)
6
Serve immediately, spread with butter.

NOTE: These will keep for several days in a plastic bag and can be reheated in a microwave -about 10 sec for 2 tortillas.
