I hope you are having a successful Emergency Preparedness Month. My goal for this month is to fill up our water containers that we have out in the garage, but are empty. I have been cooking some of my food storage recipes like these Sweet Milk Tortillas. They are sweeter than a tortilla and when you serve them with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, it becomes a delicious treat. These definitely passed all my taste testers at our house for a great food storage recipe.
Dulce de Leche Tortilla - Sweet Milk Tortilla
2 ½ cups flour
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking powder
3 T. sugar
¼ cup + 2T. Olive oil
2 T. shortening
¾ cup warm milk
Combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Add oil and shortening into the flour mixture. Pour in the warm milk, until a soft dough forms.
Knead for 1 minute in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes. Form the dough into 8 balls and place on an oiled baking sheet.
Flatten the balls, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. On lightly floured surface, roll each piece into an oval, about 3 inches in diameter.
Cook on a medium-hot griddle for about 1 minute, turning frequently. Tortillas are done when golden-brown spots appear. Serve with butter and cinnamon sugar.
