Super quick and easy homemade flour tortilla recipe

Hello, It’s good to talk to you again! I wasn’t planning on posting today, but it’s raining , the kiddies are watching a movie and I made 
a fresh batch of flour tortillas, all in that order ;) 
It was a holiday this Monday here in Ontario and since the stores were closed, I decided that it was a good time to try the flour tortilla recipe I had pinned a while ago. 
I also wanted to show you this adorable copper flour tin I found at the thrift store.
 It comes with a set of three other containers. 
I think these would look so pretty with flowers in them. 
But I digress, here is a flour tortilla recipe. I can almost promise you that once you make your own homemade tortillas, you will not want to purchase the grocery store type.  
They are so easy to make and take very little time. 

Homemade flour tortilla recipe


3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/3 cup of vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
1 cup of warm water 


1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well combined. 
2. While stirring add oil and warm water and continue to stir until mixture comes together and begins to form a ball. 
3. Place dough ball in a well floured surface and knead a couple of times until dough is smooth. 
4. Divide dough into equal portions (I was able to make 12 though the original recipe called for 16)
5. Still working on a well floured surface, flatten dough balls with your hands and cover with a kitchen towel for 10-15 minutes.
6. Roll each piece of dough . 
7. Place rolled dough on a hot pan and cook for approximately 1 minute or until bottom shows a few brown spots. The top portion of the dough will form bubbles. 
8. Flip over and cook for an additional 30-40 seconds. 
Serve immediately or place in a air tight container to keep them pliable. 

Easy right? And so delicious which is almost bad because I can’t resist them.
