Tortilla recipe

My son made these for breakfast yesterday morning. I can't post a personal picture of them because they were gobbled up in their Frankesteinian state, but they were so much better than store bought. Here in England, we get ours from Germany or frozen from the US. I usually have Masa Harina on hand, but have been extremely forgetful when writing my grocery list lately. Chalk that up to age, I guess.
The commissary ones make do in a pinch, but fresh ones, ahhhh!
Homemade Tortillas

8 Servings Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons olive oil
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle.
In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm. Yield: 8 tortillas.
