Tortillas and Sopapillas

Welove it when we can talk Nicole into making these. Everyone here likes them a lot better than the store bought tortillas
Serves: 5

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup water warm

For Tortillas
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in shortening. Blend until mixture is the consistency of coarse meal. Add water slowly and mix. Knead mixture. If dough is a little sticky, add extra flour a little at a time. Separate dough into 10 2 in balls. On a clean, dry surface, roll balls into flat round tortillas. Keep turning the dough around and around as you roll it to help make it round but always leave the same side facing down on the counter. Brown both sides on a flat griddle surface, medium high heat. Makes 10 tortillas.
