    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE!! My husband has snubbed all my attempts at making tortillas until I made 3 dozen of them.. I got, maybe, 3 out of all of them because he scarfed them all down! These are so easy to make and the best recipe I have found thus far. 5 stars all the way!
    We love this recipe. Now this is the only way we have tortillas. we don't buy them in the store anymore. Store boghtin is not the same tasting as homemade.
    I have tryed your recipe put when i roll it out to put it in the tortilla pan the dough shink it will not stay to the shape that i rolled out
    I thought the tortillas were a little on the oily side-it could have been my mistake in measuring. I will give them one more try.
    I followed this recipe exactly and everything came out perfect!! Now i am useing this recipe instead of buying tortillas already made because they taste better than store bought and I can control how many I need.
    After searching the internet for other recipes after I already tryed this one, I found out this recipe is missing baking powder. This recipe was ok but very rubbery and elasticy in your mouth.
    I tried this recipe I thought my Nana did this when i was a child how hard could it be?? It wasnt hard at all. Simple and taste great. Tip for cooking these use a electric griddle. The product will not burn and will brown also use kitchen towels to cover. I and my family enjoyed the tortillas and we will be making this recipe for years to come. Thank you, Molly
    This recipe was very easy to follow and made a nice light tortilla. Loved it.
    These tortillas were ok. Nothing to write home about but good to go with a spicey soup or chili.
    I followed to recipe exactly and my tortillas came out really tough. I had to ad butter to my pan because they were not browning correctly. I don't know if it was something I did but they didn't appeal to me.
    Very easy to follow.
