.Homemade Wheat Thins.

I made these last week with my Cadi-Bug. They are so scrumptious! We ate two batches in a week, and I am tempted to make more tonight, if I weren't so tired that is. I will definitely be making these tomorrow! I think the sugar could be cut back a bit, but the recipe does have the same sweetness as a store bought wheat thin, so if you like that keep the full amount of sugar. My husband laughed at me, because I exclaimed over the rusticness of these crackers. They just looks so earthy, so homey! {grin}

Homemade Wheat Thins

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (at room temperature)
2/3 cup milk
salt (or other dried herbs and seasoning) for sprinkling

Method:

1. in a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar and salt. cut in the butter and mix until you have a coarse meal.

2. slowly blend in the milk just until you have a dough that will hold together. divide the dough into 2 pieces for rolling.

3. roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 1/8 inch thickness. sprinkle with salt and roll over lightly with the rolling pin again. cut the dough into 2×2 inch squares. poke each square several times with a fork.

4. transfer squares to an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 325 F for 20-25 minutes, until crackers are golden brown.


Variation:

Grate 1/4 to 1/2 onion into the dough, add some parsley and dill weed.

I made one batch of the regular recipe, then I came up with the above variation. I really, really loved the onion-y one, especially with a sliver of sharp cheese! I will definitely cut back the sugar on the onion-y batch next time. I think these would be good with some cheese added to the dough and then some Parmesan cheese rolled on the top. I am sure you can think of a ton of variations, and I would love to hear what you come up with! For a printable recipe please click here.

I had some photos of my Cadi to share, while we made these together, but my computer is throwing fits tonight. {sigh} Maybe I will try to add them on later.

I am on the look out for other recipes similar to this one. I would especially love a Triscuit type recipe. I haven't found one yet, though! Do you have a favorite cracker or cracker recipe?

I would have never thought about trying to make something like this, but they sound really good and easy and I would be very impressed with myself for not buying them in the store...think Joy and I should try these!

Thanks for sharing your recipe! (I left you a comment on the post below too).

Have a great day, Tiffany!

Tiff, Thanks for the cracker recipe,I can't wait to try it!!!
I am praying for you and your insomnia. I have occasional bouts. Usually, saying verses or praying helps me to get some rest. Satan doesn't want me to rehearse GOD's word. I'm sure that you have tried this. I will pray for rest for you. Love, ~AK~
