Authentic Flour Tortillas

5 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp salt
3/4 c shortening

Combine dry ingredients and blend well. Add shortening and blend with a pastry blender - like pie crust. Add 1 1/2 cups of warm (not hot) water. Knead it well and divide into 1 1/2 inch balls. Cover for 20 minutes. Roll out flour as round as you can get them. Cook on a dry hot skillet.
