I've helped my grandmother make flour tortillas before, but I had never made them by myself. Below are pictures from my first attempt to make them from scratch on the comal I received as a Christmas present.
This recipe seemed reasonably close to my grandmother's (which isn't measured). More importantly, the picture LOOKED right.
Store-bought or restaurant flour tortillas are often pale imitators of their homemade counterparts. Real flour tortillas should have dark char marks where they came in contact with the cooking surface.
The prettiest one!
