I've layered them each between glad wrap put the whole lot back in the packet and into the freezer will they keep like this??

That should work fine. I make my own tortilla and freeze those very successfully. i don't put anything between them and to date they have not stuck together, although i usually take them all out of the freezer at once to thaw, rather than one at a time if you know what I mean.

Great, thanks for that. I haven't mastered the art of making my own yet :(

They are really easy.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp oil
about 3/4 cup warm water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl or food processor, add the oil and then gradually add enough water to form a soft dough.
Knead on a floured board for about 5min (I usually do much less than this), then allow to rest.
Divide dough into 10-12 pieces, and roll each to about 20cm across.
Cook them quickly in a very hot oiled pan, until they bubble, flip over and cook other side (about 30sec-1min each side)
Wrap them in a damp tea towel to keep them soft while you cook the others.

To reheat tortilla wrap them in foil and place in oven at low temp.

TD, can these be used cold as wraps for the kids school lunches? They sound brilliant if they can :)

I don't see why not. They are not as perfect and square or round as shop bought ones (well mine aren't!) and they probably are a bit thicker as they puff up a bit when cooked but very filling. I use half white and half wholemeal too for a bit more fibre.
My 3 year old loves them and is a bit obsessed on them at the moment.

I make these too and my kids love them in their lunch boxes - their favourite filling is mixed grated cheese and carrot. :D
