Are you telling me that I am going to make my own tortillas!?!?!?!? Well, I'll give it a shot!! I did make my own hamburger buns and they were really good - I loved the yeast flavor in them.

Question - Can I store them in ziplock bags or should I wrap in plastic wrap? If I make them earlier in the day what's the best way to keep them until that night?

I'm just full of questions !!:D

(I hope you don't mind but I just made the bottom directions easier to read by starting a new paragraph - that's why it says it is edited by me)

Tortillas

when i make my own tortillas what i do not use .i saran wrap and put dough in frig.. and set out later till dough feels ready to roll.. but when iam lazy i buy already tortilla mix. WHITE WINGS.
But i add the yeast to the mix. the tortillas are always soft. so i roll all the flour recipe. and cook . what i have left over i put in zip bag and tortillas stay fresh.
mis the yeast in warm water .
