I used my Cuisinart Food Processor to mix the dough. I used 3 3/4 cups of flour, 2 tsps. of baking powder, 1 tsp. of salt, 1/3 cup of Crisco Shortening, and after pulsing 6 times, added 1 1/3 cups of HOT WATER. Pulsed until it came into a ball. Took out of processor and kneaded about 5 times. Let rest for about 10-15 minutes. Made into 13 balls and rolled each one out. Put on cast iron griddle (comal) for about 15 seconds and flipped on other side to cook. Flipped again and removed from griddle (comal) and placed in paper toweled tortilla warmer. They came out perfect. This is my go to recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing. I used to make them all the time, but had no measurements. Just used my hand to measured all out. ( This is how I was taught as a young girl). And my flour tortillas were great then and delicious. Now I have the perfect recipe to use in the food processor. Thank you for the recipe. NOTE**** You can also use this same recipe to make sopapillas, or buenelos. Instead of placing raw tortilla on hot griddle, first you must use fork tines on rolled out raw tortilla, then place in about 1 inch or so of hot oil, keep an eye on tortilla, it will start to bubble, then flip over tortilla carefully and cook another few seconds to light golden brown. Drain on paper towels. You may then put cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Very delicious. Enjoy.
