Divide dough into 12 pieces and roll into a ball.
Place onto a floured baking tray and cover with a damp cloth. Leave to rest for one hour.
Roll each ball out onto a lightly floured surface to form very thin circles.
Heat a heavy-base frying pan over high heat and place one tortilla in the pan.
You should see spots of rising on the surface withing two seconds if the pan is hot enough.
Cook for four to six seconds, then turn over and cook for another five seconds.
