The most popular snack in our house is crackers so when I saw this on Oh She Glows I knew it would be perfect! These were surprisingly easy to make and tasted great. When rolling out the dough my edges were a little thin so those baked up darker than the rest. Next time I'm thinking of tossing in some sesame seeds, poppy seeds or flax seeds.
I made half the recipe below since I wasn't sure how they would turn out. Next time I will be making the whole recipe!
Homemade Wheat Thins
Adapted from Oh She Glows
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt, plus extra for sprinkling
1/4 tsp paprika
4 tbsp unsalted cold butter
1/4 cup + 3 tbsp water, more as needed
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, sugar, 1/2 tsp salt and paprika. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 forks until mixture is crumbly. Mix the water and vanilla together. Add to the flour mixture and stir together. If the mixture is not coming together add a bit of water being careful not to make the dough sticky.
Divide the dough into two pieces. On a lightly floured surface roll out half of the dough very thin. Using a pizza cutter, cut into shapes. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet using a spatula and then sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
Bake for 8-10 minutes rotating pan at halfway mark. Keep a close eye on them to ensure they don't burn. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container.
