    Tortillas de Azucar (Sugar Tortillas)

    Tortillas de Azucar are sweet little tortillas that are like a cross between a cookie and a biscuit. Simply mix up the batter, cook up on a griddle, and serve them smeared with cajeta for dessert or plain with a cold glass of milk for breakfast. Either way, they're delicious and very quick to make.


    Ingredients
    2
    cups
    flour
    1/2
    cup
    sugar
    1/2
    teaspoon
    baking powder
    1/2
    cup
    shortening
    1
    egg
    1/4
    cup
    milk
    1
    teaspoon
    vanilla extract
    Directions
    In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add shortening and mix well, working dough with your hands. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and knead until dough is smooth but not sticky.
    Divide dough into 24 small, round pieces. Press with tortilla press until 3’ wide and 1/4’ thick.
    Cook over medium heat on un-greased griddle 1 minute and then turn with spatula and cook another minute. Tortilla should be nicely browned on both sides.
    Place on wire rack and let cool. Tortillas are soft when warm but harden to crisp when cool. Store in tin 3-4 days.
