It softens them. I've been known to make a trip to the LCBO just for the largest brown paper bag when I'm out of bags from the States.
Homemade pitas are so easy to make, especially when making the dough in the bread machine. I usually get 8-10 out of this recipe. I roll them quite thin--probably about 1/4 in. thick. I also make one where I grind oatmeal in the FP, and add that. I have a lot of pita recipes, but ww are my go-to ones. I've just started adding the chick pea flour.
I used to always make them when I hosted "spinning" afternoon (this was spinning fiber, not the exercise spinning). The gals were always so impressed when I took the pitas out of the oven and they were puffed up.
