making tortillas

I swear, this is not turning into a food blog.  I’ve just been in the mood to cook, bake, eat.  I had been wanting to try these tortillas for so long and finally did.  They peaked my interest because they use walnuts and oatmeal as the fat instead of oil, shortening or lard.

Now, I grew up on homemade tortillas, so I have a pretty strong idea of what a good tortilla looks and tastes like.  These ended up being quite good, but nothing like grandma’s.   I did add 1 tsp of baking powder to make them softer, lighter and less dense, which I think helped.

I will make them again because the kids devoured them.  And it warms the house so nicely when I cook on the cast iron griddle. Between these and my grandma’s recipe, I won’t be able to buy any more store brand tortillas again.
