Ingredients

2 cups Flour, all purpose
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/4 cup Vegetable shortening
3/4 cup Water, warm

Directions

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in the
shortening until the mixture has a mealy appearance. Slowly
add the water while mixing. Form the dough into a ball.
Place the ball on a floured board and knead until firm (about 2 minutes). Divide into 12 small balls. Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Roll each ball into a thin 7" tortilla. Heat a heavy skillet. Cook the tortilla for 1 minute per side. Wrap in a damp towel. Serve immediately.
