Flour Tortillas with Roasted Garlic
It’s no surprise that fresh, homemade tortillas are far superior to store-bought. But what is so astonishing is how easy they are to make. These Flour Tortillas with roasted garlic are soft and supple, with a light garlic flavor. The roasted garlic is an optional add-in, but tasters preferred the subtle flavor as opposed to none at all. You may never buy a package of tortillas again!
Pulse flour, salt, and baking powder in a food processor 2–3 times. Add shortening and roasted garlic; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With processor running, add water, just until dough forms a shaggy ball, about 30 seconds.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute.
Cover dough with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and rest 15 minutes.
Divide dough into 10 golf ball-sized pieces; cover and let rest 10 minutes.
Roll one dough ball out on a lightly floured surface into an 8-inch circle using a rolling pin.
Cook tortilla in a preheated cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side. Transfer tortilla to a plate and cover with a towel. Repeat rolling and cooking with remaining dough balls.
