A plate of homemade flour tortillasThis is the first time I have made tortillas myself and they actually turned out fabulous. In the past they have always turned out hard as Frisbees, but not these! They are soft and a million times better than the store bought kind.

  13. Roll each into a disk. I found it helpful to pick my tortilla up and rotate it after every go round with the rolling pin. This prevented it from sticking to my counters too much.

Those look so good. I've tried making tortillas before, but they didn't turn out. I will try this recipe. Thanks!
