Homemade Flour Tortillas

Recipe Courtesy Of: Café Sucre Farine

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil

  • 1 cup warm water

Directions

  1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder. Using the dough hook, mix dry ingredients until well combined.

  2. Add oil and water. After about 1 minute, or when mixture comes together and begins to form a ball, decrease mixing speed. Continue to mix until dough is smooth.

  3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface. Divide into 16 equal portions. Turn each piece to coat with flour. Form each piece into a ball and flatten with the palm of your hand. Cover flattened balls of dough with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes.

  4. After the rest period, heat a large pan over medium heat. Roll each dough piece into a rough circle, about 6-7 inches in diameter, keep work surface and rolling pin lightly floured.

  5. When the pan is hot, place one dough circle into the pan and allow to cook 45 seconds to 1 minute or until the bottom surface has a few pale brown spots and the uncooked surface is bubbly. Flip to other side and cook for 15-20 seconds.

  6. Remove from pan with tongs and stack in a covered container or zippered bag to keep the tortillas soft.

  7. Enjoy!
