Soft Tortilla 3 cups All Purpose Flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 cup lard 1 heaping tablespoon butter 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon salt put the water and milk and salt in a heat proof cup/measuring cup and heat till very hot in microwave.(or on top of stove, or solar cooker!) take the flour and baking powder and mix together well(you can sift together if you like) add the butter and lard and cut fats into the flour till pieces are very fine, I just use my very clean hands to mix the fat in till it looks like a very fine cornmeal. Start adding the water until the dough pulls together, you might not need all the liquid, and some days you might need a bit more so I just add about a teaspoon at a time. I knead the dough ball in the bowl for about 1 to 2 minutes till everything looks well mixed together. Cover bowl and sit aside for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes I knead the dough just a bit and then portion out into 16 equal pieces. Roll the pieces of dough into nice round balls and then let them rest for another 30 minutes. about 5 minutes before the 30 minutes is up start heating your griddle/cast iron pan/or comal. (sp?) It should be quite hot for the tortillas to cook evenly. after the 30 minute rest take a rolling pin(some folks online can roll these out with out a rolling pin, using just their hands,,, I can not. ) roll out nice and thin and put on the hot griddle cook on one side for about 30 to 40 seconds and then flip over for another 30 to 40 seconds and then I flip back to the first side for just a few seconds and you will see it start to puff a bit. Now if they seem to be getting too dark without cooking on the inside, then turn you heat down just a bit, if they are taking more than the 40 or so seconds per side to bubble up and get a bit golden then turn your heat up just a bit. They are so good right from the griddle hot with just a bit of fresh butter that you might have to make more! I need to find a bigger round cast iron pan so I can make some big enuf for burritos!
