im going to try a few tortilla recipes, hopefully tomorrow! even though im not vegetarian, lard gives me the heebie jeebies so im going to try a lardfree recipe for flour tortillas!

im thinking of trying this one

or http://homesicktexan.blogspot.mx/2007/03/and-end-to-my-quest-flour-tortillas.html

in the comments section of the second one, someone mentions adding sugar to make tortillas less tough. 1tsp per cup flour – not enough to change flavour or make it sweet.apparently it keeps the flour from forming longer chains of gluten (protein), which in turn prevents things from being tough and absorbs water  which  helps keep them soft and moist

this might be the same for pita bread?
