  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, salt and water until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Divide dough into golf ball size pieces and cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap.
  2. Select a ball of dough and roll out until very thin but not torn. Sprinkle lightly and evenly with sugar. Fold up dough into a small square and roll out again until thin.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled dough onto the pan and cook for 1/2 to 1 minute on each side until golden. Serve immediately. Repeat until all dough balls have been rolled and cooked.

Really good, and simple, since these ingredients are always on hand. Also can be made more or less sweet with the amount of sugar added. Requires some messy rolling, however.

you need to sprinkle this with sugar at the end or it is just a tortilla. and dont roll them out thin, roll them out medium.
