   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/3  cups          all-purpose flour
      2/3  cup           whole wheat flour
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      baking powder
      1/4  cup           vegetable shortening
      2/3  cup           water -- hot
 
 In a large bowl, stir flours, salt and baking powder. With a pastry cutter 
 blend  in shortening until resembles coarse meal. Add enough hot water to 
 form a stiff dough. Place dough on  plastic wrap and form into a cylinder, 
 approximately 2 1/2 inches thick. Refrigerate at least 1/2 hour. ( dough 
 can be made up a day in advance). Cut dough into 12 pieces. Form each into 
 a ball. On floured surface, roll each ball into  flat 8-inch circle. Cook 
 on hot ungreased griddle or skillet
 until lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Turn to other side and cook 20 
 seconds.
 
 Males 12.
 
 I have made the flour tortillas without shortening and they were just 
 fine. I made no other adjustments to the rest of the recipe.
