Easy Flour Tortillas

I made these today with my three-year-old daughter.  They turned out really well and we used them to make quesadillas for lunch.  Be sure to roll them out really thinly, though, because they puff up quite a bit when they hit the screamin' hot pan.  I'm thinking one of them will be turned into a pizza crust for C for dinner tonight.

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Pinch of sugar (optional)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (more for softer tortillas)
1 cup water

Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and oil. Add water and mix with hands. Divide into 10 small balls. Roll each flat with rolling pin and cook on very hot ungreased griddle until lightly brown on each side.

Makes 10 tortillas.
