Gluten Free Tortillas

Gluten Free Flour Tortillas
Makes about 5 big tortialls

1/2 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 cup tapioca flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
2 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup water

Mix together the rice flours, tapioca flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum. Mix in the shortening with your fingers until well combined. Add the water and mix well. If the mixture is still dry, add a little more water. Heat an ungreased skilled on medium-high heat. Roll out tortillas and cook each one on the hot pan until it begins to bubble. Then flip it and cook until the bottom has some brown spots. They’re the best if you stack them on top of each other as they come out (this softens them up a bit). You can also throw a slightly damp towel over the top one. These keep pretty well in a plastic bag in the cupboard.
