Directions:
In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in shortening or lard till thoroughly combined. Gradually add water and
toss together till dough can be gathered into a ball (if necessary, add more water 1 Tablespoon at a time). Knead dough 15 to 20 times. Let dough rest 15 minutes. For 8-inch tortillas, divide dough into 12 equal portions and shape into balls.
On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to flatten each ball into an 8-inch circle. Stack rolled out tortillas between pieces of waxed paper.
Carefully peel off top sheet of waxed paper. Place tortilla, paper side up, on a medium hot ungreased skillet or griddle. As tortilla begins to heat, carefully peel off remaining waxed paper. Cook tortilla about 30 seconds or till puffy. Turn and cook 30 seconds or more till edges curl up slightly.
