I have a few tips to making these the best tortillas they can be. First off, I used butter because I don't like lard or shortening -- and they still taste GREAT! Next, be sure your dough is a tiny bit sticky -- if it's too dry your tortillas won't roll as thin. I used my dough hooks with my hand mixer to get the dough in a ball, then plopped it onto the counter and kneaded it for just a few minutes. Instead of using flour on the counter (or on your rolling pin when you roll them out), spray the counter with PAM. When you do this it makes it so you can roll them as thin as you'd like and they'll still peel right off for you to throw on your griddle. You want to roll them as thin as you possibly can, if you don't they will be more like gorditas than tortillas (which is great for the times you want gorditas!). I put the leftover tortillas onto foil and them roll them up, placing the whole roll into a ziplock baggie and into the refrigerator. They are great to have on hand when I don't have half an hour to make them brand new.
