Homemade Flour Tortillas

I made these the other week and they turned out great. I had tried a different recipe for homemade tortillas that didn't work at all and needed butter to be cut in and things (kind of a pain), and they turned out more like tough flat pancakes. This recipe was much quicker and produced the type of soft flour tortilla I was hoping for. Sorry...I've been a bad blogger pictures this time. Maybe next time I make a batch!

Homemade Flour Tortillas - Yields 6

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup very hot water
3 tbsp oil

In a large bowl, combine flour,  salt, and baking powder. Stir in hot water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead 10-12 times, and add a little flour or water if needed until you have a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough into 6 portions. Lest rest a few more minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a fairly thin circle, about 1/4 inch thick. In a large greased skillet, cook tortillas over medium heat for approx 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm.
