Pour into a well buttered 8 inch square pan. Bake in hot oven, 400°, for 25 minutes or until done. You might like to try something different by adding 1/2 can of creamed corn and cut down on the milk so that it won't be too runny! A wonderful taste with the creamed corn in it.

2 teaspoon baking powder***1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda***2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt***1/4 cup softened butter

WENDY'S FLOUR TORTILLAS
3 cups flour***2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt***3 tablespoons Crisco or lard
Mix flour, salt and baking powder together, then the shortening. Mix well. Put a little bit of hot water in flour mixture to make a firm dough. If not enough water, add a tad more. Roll them on a floured board, real thin and then cook on a very hot ungreased iron griddle. You might want to try your hand at making them without the rolling pin, just grab a hunk of dough and use your hands to pat them out into a thin circle.
