Flour Tortillas

Yes, it’s true; you can make easy gluten free flour tortillas! These are yummy and stay moist and pliable.

4 cups GF flour blend, sifted
8 T. butter
1¼ t. salt
1¼+ cup hot water

Sift together the dry ingredients. Work in the butter with a pastry cutter or large fork. Trickle in the water, a little at a time, until the dough is a workable ball.

Divide the dough into 16 fairly equal balls. Cover and set aside for 20-30 minutes. Heat a griddle (prefer using a countertop electric one for getting the job done quickly). Roll out the discs on a tea towel or pastry cloth with a rolling pin, making them as thin as they can be and still be handled. Cook each tortilla for a few seconds, until the bubble slightly; then turn. Wrap in a tea towel and cover to help keep moist.

Makes: 16 flour tortillas.

This recipe is from my cookbook: "The Farmer's Daughter Cooks Gluten Free."
