Today I thought I would share a recipe for homemade wheat thins I found online the other day. They are super easy to make, and they don’t have a whole lot of ingredients! If you don’t own a rolling pin like me lol, you may want to invest in one or you won’t be able to roll your dough out thin enough. I was pleasantly surprised by how close they tasted to the real thing:D
- 1 1/4 cups (5 oz) 100% whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus extra for sprinkling on
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 4 tablespoons butter (or butter substitute)
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp water (or a tiny bit more if dough is too dry)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- Parchment paper
Step one- preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and put all of your dry ingredients in to a bowl then mix them together.
Step two- add your room temperature butter to the dry ingredients and cut it in with a two forks, or with a pastry blender.
Step three- add your water to the bowl and mix it, then form a ball with it. If the dough is to dry add a tiny bit more water, but you do not want it sticky!
Step four- place dough on a floured clean surface and roll it out with a rolling pin, I used a cup and couldn’t get it quite as thin as it needed to be.
Step five- using a pizza cutter cut your dough in to cracker sized squares.
Step five- place squares on to parchment paper covered baking sheet, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes rotating baking sheet once.
Step six- Enjoy!
