Homemade Organic Vegetarian Flour Tortillas

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups organic unbleached white flour
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 tsp. Homemade Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. organic pasture butter
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup warm unchlorinated and unfluoridated water (110°)

Here’s How I do it:

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking powder.
  2. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles cornmeal.
  3. Add 1/2 cup warm water and mix until dough can be gathered into a ball.  (If needed, add more water, 1 Tbsp. at a time.)
  4. Let dough rest 15 minutes, covered with a clean kitchen towel.
  5. Divide dough into 12 portions.
  6. Shape each portion into a ball.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, flatten each ball with a small luncheon plate.
  8. Roll each flattened ball into a 7-inch round.
  9. Trim uneven edges to make round tortillas, if necessary.
  10. Cook in an ungreased skillet over medium-high heat until each tortilla is lightly browned on both sides.
  11. Yields 12 tortillas.
  12. Enjoy!
