2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons shortening

Preparation / Directions:

Combine ingredients in Cuisinart. With food processor still running add warm water until a soft, dry dough forms. Remove dough and divide into 12 equal parts. Form into small dough balls. Allow to rest 20 min. While comal is heating, roll out dough balls between pieces of wax paper dough to thin disk. Or pat between floured hands until thin disk forms. Or purchase an electric tortilla press that presses the dough and cooks the tortilla at the same time (I now use the electric press). Place flattened dough onto hot comal flip and presto best tasting tortilla ever. Does not fall apart.
