  1. Thanks for the recipe Lori! Flour tortillas are my favorite!

  2. Thanks for these Lori, back in 1986 after we married we lived in London England they did not have flour tortillas so every week I made my own a couple years later the stores there started carrying them so after that I stopped making them. My old recipe is still back in England since I have 2 teenage girls now I want to show them how to make them. Thanks Lori!
