Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups All purpose flour
1½ teaspoon Salt
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
4 tablespoons Lard or shortening

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening. Make a well in the center and add water, a small amount at a time, to form a dough. Knead dough in bowl until smooth and elastic. Cover and wet aside for ten minutes. Form dough into egg-sized balls and flatter between palms. With rolling pin, roll each ball into a 6 inch circle, about ⅛ inch thick. Cook on preheated ungreased skillet over medium high heat, apprx. two min. per side, until tortilla looks slightly speckled. Cover with a clean towel to keep warm and soft until served. The tortillas may be cooled and stored in plastic bags in the freezer for later use.
