How to Make Soft Flour Tortillas

How to Make Soft Flour Tortillas :
Here is the way I like to make my super soft flour tortillas just like my Grandma made them. These tortillas are perfect for burritos, wraps, and tacos. The fat content in the recipe can be substituted with a healthy oil of your choice, butter or lard. If I had to give one tip to making good tortillas, it would be practice makes perfect. There are so many variables that can change the outcome, so hopefully, with practice, you can adjust and succeed making a great tortilla. Best of luck and don’t give up!

-3 cups all purpose flour (I used King Arthur’s unbleached flour)
-2 tsp baking powder
-1tsp kosher salt (1/2 tsp if using fine table
-1/3 cup shortening or lard (butter or oil works as well)
-1 cup ( 1/4 cup extra hot water in case dough is too dry after mixing. Add a tbls at a time until soft and moist)
