Flour Tortillas

3 c flour
3 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp shortening
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 warm water

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt, then cut in shortening. Add water and knead dough gently for about 5 minutes. Allow to rest in a warm place for about an hour.

Roll dough into small balls, and allow to rest for another 10 minutes. Roll balls out into very thin tortillas and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Time to make: ~1 1/2 hours
