6) Divide the tortilla dough into 24 small golf ball sized rounds.
7) Pat each ball with your palm slightly, place a dot of lard on top, cover with a small waxed paper, allowing them to rest for about 30 minutes.
8) On a floured flat surface, roll out the tortillas into thin, saucer-size rounds.
9) On an ungreased, hot comal or flat grill bake the rolled out tortillas.
