Whole Wheat Tortillia's

3 cups wheat flour

1 cup warm water

1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup oil
If you would like to take advantage of the benefits of soaking, start with step 1, otherwise start with step 2.
1. Combine all flour, water, oil 2. Measure liquid ingredients into a mixing bowl.
2. Add baking powder. salt, kneading in the flour until the dough is workable but not too stiff. Let stand 10 minutes.
4. Shape into 8 - 10 balls and let stand 10 more minutes. Roll to form a 10 inch circle or use a tortilla press.
5. Heat in skillet on both sides until slightly browned.

This was my first try at homemade tortilla's. The children gave them a big thumb's up. The shape is not exactly correct. This was an easy recipe I would definitely make them again.

Fabulous! I am SOOOO proud of you. I have a tortilla press & the shape of mine is not perfect. But does it matter what it looks like if it tastes good???????????????
Love you!
