Re: How in the world do I get thin tortillas?

When I make tortillas I like to soak them as per NT. So, I make them then leave them in bowl on the bench overnight. The next night I roll out half, then form the rest into balls and freeze them. When I next make tortillas, I let the frozen dough thaw and sit for a bit, then roll the out. THAT lot, the frozen then thawed ones, roll out very very thin and have less stretch left in the dough so it doesn't pull the rolled out circle back smaller again. I use spelt flour, either whole meal or a mix of white and wholemeal. They don't puff up, either.

Maybe post your recipe?
