Homemade Tortillas

I found this recipe online and it has become a family favorite! Store bought ones just don't taste so good any more, I think the homemade ones are more filling too. They are really easy to make and turn out soft and yummy!

Flour Tortillas

2 c. flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. oil
3/4 c. warm water or milk

Stir together first 3 ingredients, Mix in liquids. Dough will be sticky. Knead 2 minutes. Let rest 10-20 minutes. Divide into about 8 balls and let rest for another 10-20 minutes. Roll or press out as flat as you possibly can. Fry on a dry skillet until slightly brown. You can keep them warm and soft if you cover them with a damp towel. Enjoy!

These are killer cookies! Their name describes them well...Treasures. I brought them to a Church potluck on Sunday and they went over really well! I used Snicker bars when I made them and they were delicious! And super easy to make. Here's the recipe.
1 c. soft margarine
1 c. peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar, packed
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Miniature Milky Way, Snickers or Three Musketeer candy bars

Cream margarine, peanut butter, flavoring, eggs and sugars together. Combine and add dry ingredients. Quarter tiny candy bars; wrap enough dough around each piece to cover. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees about 8 minutes. Let cook on pan 5 minutes before removing. Enjoy!
