Homemade Flour Tortillas

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup water

Instructions:
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the oil and water and stir together until well blended.
On a floured surface, knead the mixture for 3-5 minutes, or until the dough is soft and no longer sticky.
Cover and set aside for 20 minutes. Divide the dough into 8-10 balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
On a floured surface, roll out each ball into a thin, 6 inch circle with a rolling pin.
Cook the tortillas in an ungreased pan over high heat until lightly browned on both sides.
Cover with a damp paper towel until ready to serve, to keep them warm and moist.
