Flour Tortillas


4 c flour (last time I used 3 c ww, 1 c white, next time I may try all ww)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 c coconut oil (recipe calls for shortening)
1 to 1 1/4 c water

In lg bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in coconut oil w/ a fork. Add water a little at a time until dough forms a cohesive ball. Knead about 20 times. Let rest in bowl about 10 min. From into 10-12 equal balls. roll ball in flour, then on a clean well floured surface, roll into a 6-7" circle (mine are never round, but close enough). Try to get it as thin as you can. Fry, 1 at a time in a dry, hot skilllet (since we use cast iron, "dry" is a relative term, but I don't add oil to it when I make these). Cook 30-45 seconds until under side is dry w/ a few brown spots. Flip & cook on the other side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

DH was very skeptical about these, but after trying them, he conceded that they are better than store bought ones LOL.
