Picnic Wraps

Picnic Wraps...a different sort of bread to take along with you on a picnic or for that matter anywhere you wish! I originally got this recipe from a King Arthur cookbook. I like to try new recipes and I was pretty pleased with the results. I think this wrap can go a long way...stuff it with any of your favorite sandwich fillings. It goes great with thinly sliced bbq beef and cucumber sauce...yumm.

2 cups unbleached bread flour
3 TBS oil
1/2 -3/4 cups water ( I used a bit over 1/2 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
In a medium size bowl, mix together the flour an oil. Gradually mix the water and salt. Knead briefly, just until the dough is smooth. Divide the dough into eight pieces. Round them into balls, flatten slightly, and let them rest, covered, for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat an ungreased frying pan over medium heat. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll it out until it is about 8 inches in diameter. Fry (dry-fry) the wrap for about 45 seconds on each side (it may take a bit longer just check) until it's a mottled brown. Cool and store in an airtight container.
