I know this isn't really baked, but because it's a type of bread, I posted it here.

Homemade Tortillas
Thumb of 2010-11-14/Lynxx/1683c3

6 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
2 1/2 cups warm water

Place the flour in the bowl of a mixer. Add the baking powder and salt and mix well.
Add the shortening. Turn the mixer on low and slowly start adding the flour. Mix on low for about 50 seconds.
Scrape the dough out of the bowl and onto a floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Cover each with plastic wrap, and set aside to rest at room temperature for
20 minutes. Divide each half into 8 equal portions. You will now have 16 dough balls. Lightly flour your work surface. with a rolling pin, roll each ball out into about an 8 inch round.
Stack the rounds onto a baking sheet with plastic wrap between each round. Let them rest another 10 minutes.
Heat a griddle or a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Lightly coat the skillet with vegetable oil spray. Cook the tortillas about 1 minute each on each side., or until little brown spots begin to appear on the surface. Great warm. Can be microwaved about 10 seconds if using later. These tortillas can be refrigerated for over a month, if kept in a gallon sized ziploc baggie, all of the air pushed out.
