Homemade Tortillas--freshly milled flour

Homemade Tortillas, w/ freshly milled flour

2 cups freshly milled flour
2 Tbs lecithin
1 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup oil

Measure liquid into bowl.
Add dry ingredients.
Knead in flour until the dough is workable - it will be barely workable - too much flour makes them crack. I had to get a tortilla press to use this recipe because I handle the dough. It would get too stiff.

Let stand 10 minutes.

Shape into 8 balls and let stand 10 minutes more. Roll thin or use a tortilla press.

If using a press, follow those directions.

Otherwise heat ungreased skillet over med-high heat until a little a water sprinkled on the surface tortilla in pan - cook 20 to 30 seconds until top is bubbly and bottom is flecked with brown spots. Turn over and cook 20 to 30 seconds more. If tortilla puffs when cooking, press down gently with spatula. Remove. If pan becomes to hot - turn heat down.
