Directions:
Mix all but the flour together. Chill overnight. When ready to roll out, add flour one cup at a time; be careful to not add too much flour or handle too much as they will get tough. Take a little ball at a time, about the size of a plum, and roll out very thin and place on heated griddle. Cook until brown spots appear, use a long stick to turn and handle with. To keep soft, remove from griddle and place between towels. Cool. Store in plastic bags in refrigerator.
