How To Make flour tortillas

  • 1
    Place liquids in bowl.
  • 2
    Add the dry ingredients.

    Knead until the dough is workable but not stiff. (Keep the dough moist for soft tortillas.)
  • 4
    Let stand 10 minutes.
  • 5
    Pull out golf size tortillas & place onto floured board.
  • 6
    Either roll with floured rolling pin or press down with fingers. Of course you could press with a tortilla press if you have one. I like pressing down with my fingers because I feel like I get a better shaped tortilla.
