Thank-you, thank-you! My family cooks and measures the same way "a little of that... a pinch of that," etc. Made it extremely difficult for me to perfect my family's tortilla recipe. I was very happy so see your measurements for the ingredients, I had been experimenting for a few months. The only thing I would add is ½ teaspoon of baking soda.
Don’t forget to follow the instructions. Mix the shorting with the dry ingredients well and make sure the mixture is consistent before adding the water. I recommend adding ½ of the water first and knead it a little bit, then add the remaining water and knead again. I tried this recipe twice, the first time I was lazy and put all the ingredients in at the same time and paid for it when my tortillas came out hard. The second time with a little patience-- they were perfect. For those of you who have to try this more than once, it’s normal-- flour tortillas are tricky. You might want to start by making 6 (1/3 of the recipe). In step three she uses the word “fry”, but it doesn’t mean use oil, she means cook it by putting on a frying pan (best if it’s a non-stick pan) or a skillet. Good luck!
