Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American, Mexican
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 230 grams Denise's Perfect Gluten-Free Flour Blend
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. margarine
  • 3/4 cup water

Instructions

  • First combine the gluten-free flour, salt, baking powder, margarine, and water in the mixing bowl of your stand mixer.  Using the paddle attachment, mix on medium speed for several minutes until the dough is well combined and comes together.
  • The dough will be stiff, so if you don't have a stand mixer then mix it by hand.
  • Take out a piece of the dough that is slightly larger than a golf ball and place it on a piece of greased wax paper.
  •  Using your hands gently flatten and press the dough into a round shape about 4-6 inches in diameter.  If you desire, you can use a rolling pin and GENTLY smooth the surface after you have pressed it into shape with your hands.
  • Invert the tortilla with the wax paper onto your hand.  Gently peel off the wax paper.  Don't throw it away you will use it to make the rest of the tortillas.
  • Flip the tortilla from your hand onto a hot griddle preheated to medium-high.
  • Bake until bubbles start to form on the top of the tortilla and dark spots form on the bottom.
  • Flip the tortilla over and cook for another minute or two until the underside is dry and begins to get brown spots.
  • When the tortillas are done I remove them from the griddle,
  • Place them in a clean dish towel that is folded over to keep them warm and soft while the others are cooking.

Notes

These are best served fresh while they are still warm.  Store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.  Reheat them on the stove on a warm griddle or wrap them in a damp paper towel and heat them in the microwave for a few seconds until they are soft and pliable again.
