This was my first attempt at homemade tortillas. Everyone in my family agreed that they were so much better than store bought tortillas. I was amazed how easy they were to make!
Whole Wheat Tortillas
(Taken from "Wild Flour" by Denise Fidler, the Country Baker)
3-4 cups soft whole wheat pastry flour (I used freshly ground white wheat flour)
1 tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup oil
1 cup warm water
In your Bosch bowl with batter whips (or other mixer), mix dry ingredients. Add all wet ingredients in a slow and steady stream. Mix and knead adding more water or flour as needed to produce a smooth dough for 1-2 minutes. Form into 12-18 balls. Cover and rest 30 minutes. Press in electric or manual tortilla maker and cook. The secret to a great tortilla is a soft and moist dough.
*I used a rolling pin to roll them out and cooked them on my electric griddle.
*Warm tortillas with butter, cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top are delicious.
*Tortillas freeze great. Just seal in heavy-duty freezer bag with layers on waxed paper between them.
I love to visit the home of a friend. It seems that I am always inspired when I learn from other women how they manage their home and teach their children. This blog is a visit to our home. Just click on an above topic to see what thoughts I have posted in that area. I am always adding new thoughts so that I can preserve my memories of being a mom to 7 young children and wife of a wonderful husband.
