This picture didn't turn out well at all. I read the reviews on this before I decided to buy it and all said to use wax paper instead of using the bare metal. The directions said the same thing but I didn't have any so I used a plastic bag, it worked just as good.
I was very happy with the results and they were actually round, usually I do a terrible job at keeping them round. The recipe made 15 small tortillas and the little press worked great. The dough did shrink after I removed it from the press and since we like thinner tortillas and bigger I used my little hand roller and rolled it out some.
It still was much faster, less mess, and more efficient than my usual routine.
Flour Tortilla Recipe
3 cups unbleached flour
(I have used wheat with much success, would like to use rice flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4-6 Tbsp vegie shortening or lard (I use canola oil or olive)
about 1 1/4 warm water.
But all dry ingredients in bowl. Add oil, lard, or shortening. Use pastry fork to break of lard and shortening if you use these. Next add warm water a little at a time until your dough is soft and not sticky. You do not need hot water.
Knead dough for a few minutes
Pull off pieces and start rolling I use a piece a little bigger than a golf ball.
Heat up pan spray some oil on not alot. Let pan heat and then start frying them one at a time. Let it cook for a few seconds till it starts to bubble up a little and flip. I wrap them in a towel to keep them warm and soft and usually we eat them immediately but they do store well in an airtight container.
