*Whole Wheat Tortillas*

4 Cups whole wheat flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoons sea salt
4 Tablespoons organic all vegetable shortening
1 1/4 Cups filtered lukewarm water

*Optional 1 Tbs molasses (for softer tortilla with a touch of sweetness)

Combine dry ingredients, mix thoroughly. Add shortening and molasses, mix. While mixer is on slowly add water. Should form a ball, don't over mix. Form a ball and cover with plastic wrap for 30 minutes. Pinch dough into golf ball sizes and roll out (a $20 tortilla press is worth the money). Cook on low heat in a cast iron skillet, once bubbles start to form flip and cook the other side. Store in refrigerator.

*You can add lime, garlic, jalapenos, cilantro, etc to the dough for a variety of tastes.
