Corn Flour / Masa harina

kitkat22222 | Jun 24, 201512:17 PM

Hi, I purchased a bag of what is labelled as "White corn flour." I thought corn flour was just corn flour until I decided to use it today and set out to find a recipe for corn tortillas on the web. I was able to find recipes that used regular old all purpose white flour (wheat based one) and recipes that called for Masa Harina. Is what I have, the white corn flour, the same thing as masa harina? Or do I have something altogether different? In any event, looking for some advice on whether to use an AP flour tortilla recipe or a Masa harina flour recipe and substitute the flour called for with my white corn flour. The AP flour recipes seem to have salt, baking powder, water and lard in them, whereas the masa harina ones seem to just call for the flour itself and then some water.
