Failsafe Recipes: Lunches and Snacks

Tortillas (Burritos) (V)

4 cups flour
4 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and rub in butter. Add water, a small amount at a time and work mixture into a dough. Knead dough until smooth, cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Form dough into balls the size of an egg. Roll each ball into a circle approx 12 cm in diameter. Heat fry pan on medium to high heat. Place tortilla in pan and cook approx 1 minute each side. (Tortilla should be lightly speckled.) Eat plain, with butter or as burritos using the garlic meat as for pizza topping, lettuce (and carrot and cheese if permitted). My boys love to take these to school/kinder with just butter, especially on special days such as excursions.- Elaine
