I love wheat thins. Bike Boy loves wheat thins. I hate the price. They have gotten so expensive. I had some time today and I thought why not? I need to get over the pretzel fiasco and keep trying new things. And this thing could save me money at the grocery store! How could I refuse?
I popped over to Finding Joy in my Kitchen and found that she had tried to make wheat thins. I was excited to see that and the recipe was so simple and easy. I couldn't screw that up, could I?
Here is the recipe:
Wheat Thins - from Finding Joy in my Kitchen
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
1 T honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
2-3 T butter, melted (I used 3 tbsp)
1/4 C water
<1/4 tsp. vanilla (I used very little vanilla - a drop or two, didn't want them to have too much vanilla)
Combine the dry ingredients together, and then add in the honey, water, butter, and vanilla. Knead ingredients together until dough forms. Take the dough out of the mixer bowl and roll it out to about 1/8" thick. You want them to be as thin as possible. So really get in there and roll out the dough. Use those elbows! Work those biceps! Ok now that we have done our workout for the day, lay out the dough on a pan and cut into squares. I have a Pampered Chef rectangular sheet pan that I used. I just rolled the dough out on the pan and cut them into squares using a pizza cutter. Sprinkle salt on top of the dough.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until crispy. Don't let them get too crispy because they will continue baking for a short time after you take them out of the oven.
