Shrinking tortillas

redbourn | Oct 31, 2016 04:50 PM

Made flour tortillas today and the taste and look are fine.

My fifth attempt and they are getting better ;-)

They were bigger when I took them out of the tortilla press but the moment that I picked them up to put them in the pan they shrank from about 5 1/2 inches to about 4 inches - before they hit the pan.

The one that looks a reasonable size was almost 3oz of dough and the others were about 1 1/2 oz

My dough looked like the image in the center, not dry or wet.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.
