honey wheat thins crackers

I’ve been on a homemade cooking kick lately.  Probably because I’ve read more and more about some of the horrible things that are put into our processed foods.  I picked up a box of wheat thins and couldn’t pronounce half of the ingredients on the list.

So, I decided to try making my own.

I took bits and pieces from different recipes I found online and came up with these.

I think they are delicious.  And my toddler kept running back to me asking for more crackers.  So much better than store bought.

Homemade Honey Wheat Thins Crackers

Homemade wheat thins – better than boxed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 5 tbsp organic butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine the wheat flour, salt and paprika. Use a whisk to mix together.
  2. Using a fork, knife, or your hands, mix in the butter until the mixture is similar to coarse sand.
  3. Add the honey and vinegar and stir well.
  4. Combine the water and vanilla in a small dish or cup.
  5. Slowly pour the water into the dough while stirring, just until the dough starts coming together. You may need more or less water. I needed a little more.
  6. Dust a work surface with flour and knead lightly.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 400.
  9. Prepare a piece of parchment paper to fit your pan and dust with flour.
  10. Roll dough until thin. The thinner the crispier!
  11. Cut with a pizza cutter.
  12. Sprinkle with salt and place in oven.
  13. Cook 7-10 minutes until crispy to your liking.

Mine made about 80 inch squared crackers, but I had to throw out some of the outer edges that were rolled too thin and burnt.
