Directions:
Heat a cast iron skillet on high. While that is heating, stir all dry ingredients together in a large electric mixer bowl. On low speed, mix in lard until the consistency is pea sized or smaller. Continue to mix on low speed and add water. You may need to add more than 1 c. but if so, only add by the teaspoonful until it is a consistency of play dough. Make golf ball sized balls and cover with a tea towel to keep them from drying out. With a rolling pin, roll ball into a tortilla using two Silpat sheets. Place tortilla on very hot skillet and let it brown on one side. Flip and brown on the other side. Remove to a towel and cover to keep warm. Place all tortillas in a plactic bag when cool.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Over the Christmas holiday, Karen and Nancy worked on perfecting this tortilla recipe for GF. The original recipe started from Karen's glutenated flour tortilla recipe. We worked serveral batches with serveral flour blends until we came up with something that we all liked...including Camarie and Rico.
