Homemade Flour Tortillas

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4-6 Tbsp shortening or butter
About 1 and 1/4 cups warm water
Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt
Cut in shortening or butter
Add water little by little, not allowing dough to get sticky
Separate into 12 equal parts and roll out into tortilla shaped flats
Either bake tortillas under the broiler for about 30-60 seconds each side or pan-fry them in a frying pan for a few seconds each side
