    The dough was really sticky, it almost had to much water

    These are amazing! They taste just like lonestar and we’re surprisingly easy to make. Recipe makes a lot of tortillas though and they are fairly small. They were perfect size for tacos, but if you are looking for your standard tortilla size I’d suggest dividing the dough into 15 instead of 20 pieces.

    im giving this recipe 4 stars, and mot 5, because they do taste great the first day. i stored mine, after they cooled, in a large Ziploc bag in my refrigerator which i have always done with my homemade tortillas. But within a few days they were dry and cracked and tore when we tried to roll them up. im not sure if i added to much flour or what. but they are quite tasty when they are first cooked. yum!

    This is so easy and perfect and delicious! Taste better then store bought in our opinion! I will trying less butter next time and experimenting with different types for flavor but still this was great! It made us 32 and all the different things we can make now!! Definitely keeping this in the family.

    first time and I made it like a pro!! directions were super easy and made like 20 tortillas!! only thing I did different- i used 1 stick of butter rather than 3/4 cup. Still came out perfectly and less fat involved (win-win) ill never buy the dry store bought again!!

    Second time trying to make homemade tortillas. First attempt with a different recipe came out thick and tough. These were amazing. Made 20 small tortillas. Went perfectly with the Carne Asada and Mexican rice I found on Yummly. Will make these again. I’d also like to make a batch with lard for comparison.

    AMAZING! So yummy I made 16 tortillas and they are a great medium size. Definitely making this all the time instead of buying

    Excellent recipe. I haven't any previous tortilla experience, but this is a welcomed introduction. I'm excited to make more and possibly test the boundaries of this recipe. Simple and delicious.

    I mixed it all by hand, barely kneaded at all, and used my tortilla press. They were so good. When fresh I’d eat them with no filling.
