The Tortilla Chronicles

We ran out of tortillas, and I got this crazy idea that it might be cheaper to make my own (like it is with bread) than to buy them every week.

And I remember doing it in Young Women's and thinking it was easy. So I dug up that old tortilla recipe from my beehive years.

And it was easy.

But they came out tough and rubbery with crunchy edges and didn't really taste very good.

It was a pretty standard recipe, so I figured I must have used a bad technique that left them leathery.

I did dig up a different recipe that gave good details on what makes them fail (ie not be soft and pliable) and I'm going to try that. I'll keep you posted.
