Whole Wheat Tortillas

My kids like these much better than store bought white or wheat tortillas!

5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 2/3 cups warm water
1 Tbsp. soy flour (only if you have it on hand, it's not necessary)

Stir together dry ingredients, then add the oil and water. Mix well and knead lightly. Pinch off walnut sized pieces of dough and roll out very, very thinly on a floured pastry cloth or on a floured board or counter. Aim for a round tortilla, but it really doesn't matter much if they are misshapen. Heat an ungreased griddle or frying pan to very hot and cook on one side until bubbles form, then turn over and cook the other side until brown "freckles" appear. Store in plastic bag. Makes 20 or more.
