    Flour Tortilla's 3C King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour 1tsp Baking Powder 1tsp Kosher Salt (3/4tsp Fine Sea or Table Salt) 1/3C Cold Lard 1 1/4C Water, Add Flour, Baking Powder and Salt to a bowl and combine. Cut or break the Lard into 1/2 +/- inch pieces and add to the flour. Cut in the lard until you have coarse crumbs. With the mixer or Food Processor running add the Water in a steady stream and allow to mix/knead in. If after 5 minutes mixing there is dry flour or dry flakes of dough, add 1T more water. If the dough is sticky, add 1T more flour. Continue kneading for another 5 minutes until smooth. Weigh and divide the dough. For 8" Tortillas, divide weight by 16. For larger Tortillas, divide by 12.

    JJ, please accept my apologies for this taking so long....

    They are very good...and very consistent batch to batch. Keep them thin enough they are still very flexible the next day...provided you don't leave them in on the skillet to long when cooking them. If you make them thick....well...
    Ernie made these..
    last night. Theyou are very good as well.
