I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Q's Tortillas

Q's Tortillas . . . oh my!

3 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt

3/4 C home rendered lard
3/4 C hot water

Load a Kitchen Aide loaded with a dough hook.  Pour in first three ingredients and mix just to sift a little bit.  Drop in the lard and get it mixing on setting 3 or 4.  Scrape the sides down frequently.  Drizzle in the water a little at a time, continuing to scrape the sides.

Once the ingredients are fully incorporated, cover the bowl with a towel and let rest for an hour.

Divide dough in 12 pieces and roll into balls.

Line the tortilla press with wax paper, press out the balls and cook in a cast iron skillet until brown on each side.

Slather with a little butter and enter heaven on earth.

You're welcome!  ;)
