Flour Tortillas
(Glutten-Free, Egg-Free, Yeast-Free, Corn-Free)

I found this recipe online, tried it, and turned out pretty good!
2 c. White rice flour (I used brown rice flour)
2tsp. Xanthan gum or Guar gum
1 tsp. Gluten-free baking powder
2 tsp. Brown Sugar ( I used unrefined cane sugar)
1 tsp. Salt
1 c. Warm water
1) Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix the ingredients thoroughly. 

2) Add the cup of warm water to the bowl and mix the dry ingredients into the water with your hand until it’s an even mixture.

3) Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place all but one of the dough balls back into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap until you're ready to work with them.

4) Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with a bit of buckwheat flour and then roll your dough ball into a roughly circular shape and get as thin as possible.

5) Throw the tortilla onto a hot griddle (I use a cast iron griddle on medium heat with just a smidge of olive oil) and let it cook approximately 1-2 minutes or until it has started puffing up and the bottom side is developing those lovely brown spots. Flip the tortilla and cook the other side until is toasty as well.

6) Slide the cooked tortilla onto a covered plate to stay warm and repeat from step 4 until you've cooked all 8 tortillas.

7) Serve these warm with your favorite filling!

*Makes 8 good size tortillas*
